Manchin Votes to Confirm Transportation Secretary Buttigieg

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) voted to confirm Pete Buttigieg as U.S. Secretary of Transportation. 

“Today I voted to confirm Pete Buttigieg as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation. Secretary Buttigieg understands the need for a strong infrastructure plan to help fix our crumbling roads and bridges and create jobs for hard-working Americans and West Virginians through economic development and reinvestment in our communities. Transportation is vital to West Virginia and I look forward to working with Secretary Buttigieg on West Virginia priorities including the completion of Corridor H, Coalfields Expressway, Route 35, King Coal Highway and other key roadways, continued support for vital air services to small communities and investing in railways that connect rural America to the rest of the nation.”
