Gwinnett Daily Post- U.S. Congressman Rob Woodall, a Republican representing Gwinnett County, has secured positions on subcommittees for highways and aviation.
According to a news release issued Tuesday, Woodall got the positions through his new role on the powerful Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
“We have a fantastic opportunity in the 114th Congress to make real progress on the challenges facing our region, and transportation is absolutely one of them,” Woodall said in the release. “Georgia is a natural leader on transportation in our region, and having a Georgia voice and advocate on the committee in Washington will make a big difference for the state and for the nation.”
Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster of Pennsylvania said he looks forward to the perspective from Woodall.
“Rep. Woodall is incredibly hard-working and brings a very valuable point of view to the table,” Shuster in the release. “I’m pleased to see him take on these new roles and am confident his input will be pivotal as we craft the commonsense solutions needed to move the country forward.”
Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, including the most of Gwinnett and Forsyth counties. He serves as chairman of the rules subcommittee on legislative and budget process.
