Confirmation Hearing To Be Held On Foxx's Nomination May 22
U.S. Senator John Thune (R-SD), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, met this week with Anthony Foxx, President Obama's nominee to replace Ray LaHood as Secretary of Transportation. He also met with Secretary of Commerce nominee Penny Pritzker.
“I would like to thank both nominees for taking the time to meet with me," Thune said in a statement following the meetings. "The confirmation process should be a rigorous, fair, and thorough exercise and I appreciate the nominees sharing more about their backgrounds, qualifications, and vision for both cabinet agencies.
“Americans continue to suffer from weak economic growth and persistent, high unemployment. I expressed to Mayor Foxx that our nation faces a number of transportation challenges that will require strong leadership and effective communication with Congress to keep our nation moving.
“I will continue to review the paperwork they submitted in preparation for ... confirmation hearings next week and expect that they will continue to be open and forthcoming as the process moves forward.”
Mayor Foxx’s hearing before the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation is scheduled for Wednesday, May 22, 2013 at 2:30 PM ET.
