On Wednesday, October 28th, 2009 the U.S. Capitol Historical Society honored the work of the Members of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the staff at a dinner full of celebration, bipartisanship and camaraderie.
The books were presented at a reception on Wednesday, March 3rd in the Committee’s hearing room.
The book contains a record of the Committee Dinner with remarks by Chairman Oberstar, Ranking Member Mica, and our Keynote Speaker Ray LaHood, U.S. Secretary of Transportation. It also includes a history of the Committee written by Dr. Fred Beuttler, Deputy Historian of the House, and the Toast to the Committee. The Society also collected reflections from a number of Committee members on memorable moments while serving on the Committee and landmark legislation.
