U.S. Senate to vote on advancing Trump transportation nominees
The U.S. Senate was set to vote on Monday to approve a senior Transportation Department nominee and advance another nomination, after Republicans accused Democrats of blocking some nominees to push for funding of a New York area infrastructure project. Senate Republicans have said their Democratic rivals were stalling a number of nominees over a dispute over funding for the $24 billion "Gateway Program," which includes building a new tunnel underneath New York’s Hudson River. At least eight other Transportation Department nominations are pending and other jobs vacant, including a top auto safety regulator.
