WASHINGTON, Jan. 11 (UPI) — Elaine Chao, Donald Trump’s pick to serve as the next secretary of transportation, said she hopes to improve the lives of Americans by modernizing infrastructure. The Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation hearing was scheduled to begin at 10:15 a.m. in Washington, D.C. Trump tapped her to help oversee his plan to improve the United States’ infrastructure. “My executive career in government began at the U.S. Department of Transportation. During my career, I have had the privilege of leading large, complex organizations in the public and non-profit sectors,” Chao wrote in prepared remarks ahead of the hearing. “In each of these positions, my goal has been to help others access opportunity and build better lives for themselves and their families by supporting policies that foster job creation and workforce competitiveness.”
