Roe Dies; Architect of ISTEA

Former Rep. Robert Roe (D-NJ), 90, a driving force behind the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA) and chairman of the then-House Public Works and Transportation Committee from 1991-93, died July 15.

APTA honored Roe in 1991 with its National Distinguished Service Award.

Roe served in the House of Representatives from 1969 until his retirement in 1993. In addition to the public works committee, now the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, he chaired the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.

In a statement on the House floor, Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. (D-NJ) cited Roe’s “noted ability to reach across the aisle” and called ISTEA “the greatest highway bill in the history of the country."
