Transportation Secretary nominee Ray LaHood

We are encouraged by what we read on Austin Bike Blog that Transportation Secretary nominee Roy Hood (R) is a member of the Congressional Bike Caucus, was a co-sponsor on Congressman Blumenauer's Bicycle Commuter Act and voted "in favor of restoring funding for the Transportation Enhancements program in the 2004 Transportation Appropriations bill".

However, according to StreetsBlog, Hood received a "low score from the League of Conservation Voters (he’s never surpassed 50%)." That is certainly not good news, but at least he seems to be aware of the importance of bicycling as a transportation mode and we remain optimistic. We will have to wait and see.
