(Washington) – Today Congressman John B. Larson released the following statement on the Senate confirmation of Anthony Foxx to replace Ray LaHood as Secretary of Transportation:

"For over four years, Ray LaHood worked tirelessly to improve our nation's transportation and infrastructure. His efforts to strengthen intermodal transportation and improve the safety of our roads will have a lasting impact in Connecticut and across the Northeast. As a former Republican Congressman in a Democratic Cabinet, Ray epitomized the bipartisanship needed for our nation's growth. I thank him for his service and will be working closely with his successor on Connecticut transportation and infrastructure issues."
