Larsen Statement on Nomination of Anthony Foxx to be Secretary of Transportation


Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, ranking member on the House Aviation Subcommittee, issued the following statement today after President Obama nominated Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx to be the next Secretary of Transportation:

"Last fall at the Democratic Convention I had the pleasure seeing firsthand the results of Mayor Foxx's commitment to forward-looking transportation policy. Seeing the improvements in the Charlottee Lynx light-rail system, it was clear that he is someone that understands the importance of investing in transportation. I look forward to working with Mayor Foxx to extend that commitment throughout the nation by investing in our roads, bridges, highways, ferry systems and airports.

"We all owe great thanks to Secretary LaHood for his service in Congress and his outstanding four years as Secretary of Transportation. I hope he'll stay involved in the transportation policy field so policymakers can continue to rely on his passion and knowledge about transportation issues."
