Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Vice Chair Sharice Davids issued the following statement on the confirmation of Pete Buttigieg as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation:


“Congratulations to Pete Buttigieg on his historic confirmation as Secretary of Transportation. During my time working in the Department of Transportation under then-Secretary Anthony Foxx, I saw the potential that smart and effective investments in infrastructure have to not just grow American manufacturing and create jobs, but to also reach communities that have otherwise been left behind.


“As a former mayor from the Midwest, Pete Buttigieg brings an important perspective that can help deliver economic opportunity to every person in this country. I look forward to working with him in my role as Vice Chair of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee to pass a transformational infrastructure package and Build Back Better.”
