Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement after meeting with Secretary of Transportation nominee, Elaine Chao:

"Elaine Chao will be an outstanding Secretary of Transportation. Over the past two years, Anna and I have gotten to know Elaine as a friend, benefitting from her kindness, experience, and common sense. She will bring these same qualities to bear for the American people. Elaine knows that a country that can build the Pentagon in 16 months shouldn't spend years to build a short highway or bridge. I'm grateful that Elaine once again answered the call to serve and I look forward to supporting her nomination."
