FRA's Feinberg to get Senate confirmation hearing this week

The Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation announced late last week it will hold a confirmation hearing on Thursday for President Obama's nomination of Sarah Feinberg as the next administrator of the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA).

Feinberg has served as the FRA's acting administrator since January, after longtime FRA Administrator Joseph Szabo resigned in 2014.

Feinberg is a former White House staff member and Facebook employee. Obama formally nominated her to the FRA post in May.
