CBS News reports:
A Senate committee will hold confirmation hearings Thursday on Pete Buttigieg, President Joe Biden’s pick to lead the Transportation Department. Buttigieg is expected to outline his vision to uphold the safety of travelers, improve the nation’s infrastructure system and fulfill Mr. Biden’s infrastructure goals amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
If confirmed, Buttigieg would oversee a department that requested $89 billion for the 2021 fiscal year and would potentially be tasked with trying to convince Congress to implement a major infrastructure plan that would spur job growth towards building sustainable infrastructure.
Start time is 10AM Eastern.
