The U.S. Senate yesterday confirmed Jeffrey Rosen as deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT).

Rosen served as general counsel and senior policy adviser for the White House Office of Management and Budget from 2006 to 2009, and as general counsel at the USDOT from 2003 to 2006. He had been a senior partner at Kirkland & Ellis LLP before and after those appointments, according to a USDOT press release.

"His extensive background in transportation, budget, regulatory reform and management will be invaluable as we implement the president's agenda," U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao said of Rosen.

Rosen said he is looking forward "to applying my experience to DOT's primary regulatory mission of safety as well as the urgent need to revitalize our nation's infrastructure."
