President Trump plans to nominate Paul Trombino III to lead the Federal Highway Administration.
Trombino is currently the head of a civil engineering company that specializes in transportation, aviation, water and structures projects.
Until last year, Trombino served as the director of Iowa’s Department of Transportation since 2011. He also served as president of the American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials during his tenure as the head of Iowa’s transportation department.
Trombino’s nomination comes at a time when the Trump administration was expected to release a more detailed legislative proposal for their infrastructure package, however they have not done so as they are focused on other issues.
Administration officials hosted a meeting at the White House last month to brief state and local leaders on Trump’s rebuilding initiative, which has yet to be finalized.
