Shailen Bhatt Appears Headed For Confirmation As FHWA Administrator

“Engineering News-Record” reports, “Shailen Bhatt, President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Federal Highway Administration . . . is moving nearer to confirmation, with a key Senate committee’s approval for the post. The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee [yesterday] cleared Bhatt’s nomination by a voice vote, apparently unanimously. The next step is a vote by the full Senate. Judging by the committee’s strong bipartisan vote, Bhatt seems on the path to confirmation.”
