Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today issued the following statement in opposition to Jeffrey Rosen’s nomination as Deputy Secretary of Transportation:
“I intend to oppose confirmation for every Transportation Department nominee until the Trump administration releases funding for the Caltrain Peninsula Corridor Electrification Project.
“For months, I’ve tried to persuade the Trump administration to release federal funding for the Caltrain corridor. In the recent spending bill, Congress directed the administration to fully fund this project.
“Despite approval from Congress, the administration continues to withhold funding without any rational justification—wasting almost $1 million a week and jeopardizing 10,000 jobs nationwide. It is long past time for the administration to release the Caltrain corridor funding.”
