Anthony Foxx has been confirmed as the 17th U.S. Secretary of Transportation in an unusual Senate vote --100-0. Foxx is the mayor of Charlotte, N.C., and could hold a meeting next week to resign that position. "We look forward to working with him to ensure the U.S. airline industry can compete globally and be a growing driver of the economy and jobs," said Nicholas Calio, president and CEO of Airlines for America.
