Congressman Chuck Fleischmann and Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) toured the Chickamauga Lock this morning. Rep. Shuster is the chairman of the Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines, and Hazardous Materials, and is a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. The Transportation and Infrastructure Committee has jurisdiction over the Chickamauga Lock.
Rep. Fleischmann said, “It is a pleasure to welcome Chairman Shuster to Chattanooga, so he can see firsthand the importance of the Chickamauga Lock to the people of East Tennessee. As a newly elected Congressman, I worked to get on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee so that I could address the Chickamauga Lock. This has been an ongoing issue for many years, and it is time that we find a solution. The Chickamauga Lock is critical to our great business climate in East Tennessee, and I appreciate Chairman Shuster taking the time to visit.”
