Keith Lang provides "a list of new players to watch as lawmakers get the ball rolling on the 114th Congress, which is expected to include debates about highway, aviation and rail funding."
Included on the list areSen. John Thune (R-S.D.), who recently attracted attention for discussing the possibility of raising the federal gas tax; Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.), the "new top ranking Democrat on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee"; and new National Highway Traffic Safety Administrator Mark Rosekind.
