Representative Steve Southerland, II announced today that Speaker Boehner has appointed him to the conference committee tasked with ironing out differences between the House and Senate on the 2012 Surface Transportation Extension Act.

I look forward to working with my fellow conferees to meet America's transportation and infrastructure needs, restore Gulf Coast communities that were hardest hit by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and expedite the permitting process for the job-creating Keystone pipeline."
