Miller named new staff director of T&I subcommittee

House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-Pa.) announced yesterday that Fred Miller is the new staff director of the Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines and Hazardous Materials.

Miller joined the committee's staff in March 2011 as the subcommittee's counsel. He has worked on a variety of oversight efforts and legislation involving Amtrak and passenger-rail reauthorizations, the Keystone XL pipeline, rail labor disputes, pipeline safety and hazardous material regulation, as well as surface transportation and aviation authorization bills.

Prior to joining the committee staff, Miller was as an attorney-adviser for three years with the Surface Transportation Board, and an attorney-adviser for more than two years with the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, working on infrastructure and security issues.

"Fred's knowledge of the law and transportation policy has been an asset to this Committee. He has been integral to our work, including the development of the Passenger Rail Reform and Investment Act, and I am pleased that he will be leading our staff as we continue our efforts to improve and reform passenger rail service in the United States," Shuster said in a press release.
