Senate Committee Approves FHWA Administrator Nominee

Nicole Nason, President Trump's nominee to serve as the next Federal Highway Administrator, was approved this week by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. The nomination now moves to the full Senate for consideration. While Nason's nomination was enthusiastically supported in the committee and is not expected to attract opposition on the Senate floor, a backlog of nominations is pending Senate approval and it could be some time before Nason is approved. AGC has strongly endorsed Nason and called on the Senate to act quickly. Nason has a strong transportation background having served as the Administrator of the National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) and as the Assistant Transportation Secretary for Government Affairs in the George W. Bush Administration.  AGC has also worked with her in her current position at the State Department on embassy construction issues.
