FHWA Administrator Nominee Withdraws

This week, President Trump’s nominee for Federal Highway Administrator, Paul Trombino, asked that his name be withdrawn from consideration. Mr. Trombino, the former director of the Iowa Department of Transportation, instead decided to remain in Iowa to take care of his ailing father, whose condition has recently deteriorated. AGC supported the nomination and called for his swift approval.
The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee approved Mr. Trombino’s nomination in October and has been awaiting for consideration by full Senate. No other individual has yet surfaced as a potential replacement. In the meantime, FHWA Deputy Administrator Brandye Hendrickson has been carrying out the Administrator’s responsibilities.
