American Council of Engineering Companies Statement on the Confirmation of Nuria Fernandez as Federal Transit Administrator  

Washington, DC  –  American Council of Engineering Companies President and CEO Linda Bauer Darr released the following statement on the confirmation vote today on the nomination of Nuria Fernandez as Federal Transit Administrator by the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs:

“Nuria Fernandez is a dedicated public servant with extensive experience partnering with the engineering industry to deliver critical transit projects in communities across the country.  We are very pleased with the Senate Banking Committee approval of her nomination to be the next Administrator of the Federal Transit Administration and urge the full Senate to process her appointment quickly.

There’s no one more qualified to lead the agency at this transformational time in transportation policy.  We look forward to working with her and the rest of the U.S. DOT team to get a bold infrastructure package enacted this year that provides the necessary resources to enhance transit service, rehabilitate and improve existing systems, and expand mobility options.”
