Keith Laing:

A bipartisan pair of lawmakers in the House announced on Thursday that they were  forming a caucus for public transportation supporters.

The lawmakers,  Rep. Daniel Lipinski (D-Ill.) and Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.), said the caucus would  “provide a forum for members of Congress to engage in constructive dialogue on  the challenges and needs of mass transit agencies across the country.”

“Buses, trains, and light rail that run safely and reliably reduce  congestion on our roads, improve travel times across all modes, cut down on air  pollution, and make our communities more attractive places to live, work, and  own businesses,” Lipinski said in a statement.

    Hopefully Bob Brady, Chaka Fatah, Mike Doyle and Matt Cartwright join. I hope Brendan Boyle wins the 13th congressional district, because he’s an Olney guy who knows about the importance of transit. Frankly, I don’t see the GOP offering up members to join the caucus, even though Congressmen Meehan, Fitzpatrick, Gerlach, Dent and even Barletta (with the Scranton-Wilkes Barre-Hazelton corridor) would him a lot for their constituents by increasing public transportation.
