With high-profile retirements, Pa. to lose experience, clout in Congress
Due to the retirements of four senior Republican members of the U.S. House, Pennsylvania is set to lose some of its juice in Washington. The latest was Rep. Bill Shuster, chairman of the powerful transportation committee, who announced Tuesday he would not seek reelection. He and his father have held the central Pennsylvania seat since 1973.
