trump-selection-of-elaine-chaoU.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow issued the following statement on news that President-elect Trump will nominate Elaine Chao to lead the U.S. Department of Transportation:

 

“The U.S. travel community heartily welcomes the selection of Elaine Chao as the next Secretary of Transportation. Candidate Trump exhibited a clear understanding of the urgent need for aggressive investment in our infrastructure in order to keep America competitive and spur economic and job growth, and now President-elect Trump is following through with a strong and capable choice to lead those efforts. Secretary Chao distinguished herself during her eight years at the helm of the Department of Labor, and is exactly the kind of principled but pragmatic leader that can turn the bold infrastructure vision Mr. Trump articulated on the campaign trail into a Beltway reality.

 

“We look forward to working with Secretary Chao on federal transportation policies that are pro-connectivity, pro-growth and pro-traveler, which will hopefully include proposals to address the dire condition of U.S. airports within the administration’s first 100 days.”
