WASHINGTON, June 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- LIUNA – the Laborers' International Union of North America – issued the following statement on today's confirmation of Anthony Foxx as U.S. Transportation Secretary.
"LIUNA – the men and women who proudly build America – congratulate Secretary Foxx on his confirmation and look forward to working with him to address our nation's many transportation challenges while simultaneously creating millions of jobs, laying the foundation for renewed economic prosperity and leaving behind real assets that will benefit future generations.
"For too long, overcrowded, outdated and crumbling transportation infrastructure has wasted America's time and money, diminished our standard of living and undermined our nation's competitiveness in the global economy.
