power gridFormer Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has been named co-chairman of the Building America’s Future coalition, which advocates for investments to improve U.S. infrastructures, Politico reported Jan. 9.

Adam Snider writes LaHood will take over the seat held by Arnold Schwarzenegger, who stepped down to concentrate on his work at the USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy.

BAF was founded in 2008 as a bipartisan coalition led by former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

LaHood served as transportation secretary for almost five years and has also served on two House panels that oversee funding for the Transportation Department during his seven terms in the cabinet, Snider writes.
