Biography

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Anthony Foxx page on 22 June 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Anthony Renard Foxx is an American politician and lawyer who served as the United States Secretary of Transportation from 2013 to 2017. Previously, he served as the Mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, from 2009 to 2013. He is a member of the Democratic Party. First elected to the Charlotte City Council in 2005, upon his 2009 mayoral victory he became the youngest mayor of Charlotte and the second African American mayor.

President Barack Obama nominated Foxx to be the Secretary of Transportation in April 2013, and he was confirmed by a 100-0 vote in June 2013.

President Obama said on April 29, 2013 that he would nominate Foxx to be the Secretary of Transportation. On June 27, 2013, the Senate confirmed the nomination of Foxx to the Secretary of Transportation by a vote of 100-0. Foxx resigned from his elected position as mayor to accept the federal appointment. He outlined his priorities on January 15, 2014 at the 93rd Annual Transportation Research Board Chairman’s Luncheon in Washington, DC.

Foxx prepared and advocated for the Obama Administration's first surface transportation bill, the Grow America Act, in 2014, and worked on a bipartisan basis to get its congressional incarnation, the FAST Act, passed. He consolidated the Department's innovative financing programs and accelerated permitting policies into a new Build America Bureau and put a new executive director in place. He embraced technology by pushing forward new rules governing the commercial use of drones, blueprinted the most comprehensive national policy on autonomous vehicles in the world, and launched the Department's first, and the Administration's most successful, Smart City Challenge, engaging more than 70 cities to develop their own strategies to incorporate new technologies into their transportation networks.

He placed nearly $30 billion in discretionary federal grants around the country, giving rise to a national pipeline of projects now poised to seek innovative financing, including the NY-NJ Gateway Project, Chicago Union Station, Florida East Coast High Speed Rail, and Texas Central Railway.

Foxx was the designated survivor for the 2015 State of the Union Address on January 20, 2015.
