Today, Congresswoman Janice Hahn (CA-44) released the following statement on the resignation of U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood:
"Secretary LaHood has been a tireless advocate for the forward looking transportation policy this country needs. From his meeting with the bi-partisan Congressional PORTS Caucus to discuss strengthening our nation's ports to his testimony before the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on high-speed rail, I appreciated his willingness to share his time and expertise with us in Congress. I have always been impressed by Secretary LaHood's steady leadership, bold vision and commitment to improving our country's bridges, highways and transit. His powerful, no-nonsense voice on transportation policy will be missed."
