Foxx, Shuster to host Twitter 'Town Hall'
U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx and House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-Pa.) will jointly host a bipartisan Twitter "Town Hall" session tomorrow to discuss the nation's surface transportation needs.
The social media event is a first between a sitting member of a president's cabinet and a House committee chairman, U.S. Department of Transportation officials said on the department's "Fast Lane" blog.
Topics to be covered during the session include: surface transportation reauthorization legislation; how to strengthen the nation's highways, bridges and transit infrastructure; and the future of the U.S. transportation system.
The Twitter event (#StuckInTraffic) will occur immediately after Foxx testifies before Shuster's committee on the need for long-term transportation legislation, The Washington Post reported yesterday.
