WA Senator Cantwell Reflects On Work With LaHood

Washington State Senator Maria Cantwell worked closely for several years with Ray LaHood, who announced Monday he is stepping down as U.S. Transportation Secretary. That announcement led Cantwell to release a statement yesterday about her time with LaHood and "his record of making smart transportation investments that support economic growth” and how "... His commitment to this vision paved the way for the new Freight Policy Council that adopts the collaborative Washington state approach to freight mobility."

Transportation Issues Daily has Cantwell's whole statement and how she says LaHood has helped our state out in particular.
