Rep. Jim Oberstar Says Farewell To Transportation Committee

After decades in Congress and many years at the helm of the powerful Transportation Committee, Representative Jim Oberstar chairs last meeting. He was defeated last month by Republican Chip Cravaack. Oberstar told the committee that he wished he would still be in Washington come January. Oberstar said the real measure of accomplishment is will it be there for our children. Ranking Republican John Mica of Florida said he will miss the bipartisan demeanor of Democrat Oberstar.
