Congressman Gerry Connolly released the following statement on President-elect Trump’s announcement of former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao as his Transportation Secretary nominee:

“The challenge facing the new Transportation Secretary from day one will be to increase federal support for Metrorail and resolve long-running questions about the ability of the FTA to provide robust safety oversight of our nation’s transit system. The federal government can no longer be a deadbeat when it comes to operating funds for Metrorail, and I look forward to working with the new Transportation Secretary to secure appropriate federal support for the very transit system that delivers many DOT employees to work each day.”
