Senator Young Votes to Confirm Elaine Chao as Secretary of Transportation

Washington D.C. — Senator Young released a statement following the floor confirmation of Elaine Chao as Secretary of Transportation:

“The Crossroads of America” is more than just a moniker for the state of Indiana. If we are to remain a main logistics and manufacturing economy, our state will need additional infrastructure investments. Secretary Chao’s previous experience as Secretary of Labor and leading various non-profits will be invaluable experience in ensuring the Department of Transportation runs smoothly and efficiently. I was proud to support her nomination and am confident her work will provide tangible benefits to the Hoosier state.”
