"I spoke with Mr. Trombino about our nation's roads and highways to ensure that they remain safe and reliable through infrastructure investments that create good-paying jobs in Illinois," Duckworth said. "The Federal Highway Administration is integral to our economy and improving the quality of life for commuters. It's important to have the right person at the helm."
