Statement by AAA President and CEO Robert Darbelnet on the Confirmation of Anthony Foxx as U.S. Secretary of Transportation

“I commend the Senate for moving swiftly to confirm Anthony Foxx as the nation’s 17th U.S. Secretary of Transportation.  AAA looks forward to working with him as he advances the department’s agenda on key initiatives like distracted driving, transportation funding and our many other shared priorities.  I also want to thank outgoing secretary Ray LaHood for his leadership on safety and for always approaching his work and the topic of transportation in a bipartisan manner.  The main challenge before Secretary Foxx is identifying and implementing a sustainable long-term funding solution.  AAA firmly believes that significant, additional investments are needed to make the system safer, more reliable and efficient, and to ensure that the nation remains globally competitive in a rapidly changing economy.  I look forward to working with Secretary Foxx to raise awareness and identify solutions to meet these challenges.”
