In an exit interview, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said, "We need to do better and we need to make sure that America does not fall further behind when it comes to infrastructure." LaHood has been praised by the AAR and now by the Natural Resources Defense Council for his significant contributions to the development of the transportation industry and his championship of green policies. "Through the innovative TIGER and TIFIA programs, LaHood helped direct funding toward critical regional transportation improvements," writes Peter Lehner.
