Rockefeller: Mark Warner & Richard Blumenthal are New Subcommittee Chairs
June 27, 2013
Chairman John D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV issued the following statement today announcing Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) as chairman of the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Surface Transportation, and Merchant Marine Infrastructure, Safety, and Security, and Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) as chairman of the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Competitiveness, Innovation, and Export Promotion.
Warner knows first-hand the importance of making investments in our
transportation system and how they fuel our economic engine. He brings
unique ideas and experience to this position, and a staunch commitment
to rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure and expanding all modes of
transportation. Senator Warner’s leadership is exactly what we need to
break the logjam in Congress over the tough decisions around
infrastructure investments. I look forward to partnering with Senator
Warner and getting this important work done.
