Watch live: Buttigieg testifies on Transportation budget before Senate panel
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is slated to testify Thursday morning before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development to defend the Biden administration’s fiscal 2024 budget request for the agency.
Thursday’s hearing is the first time Buttigieg will deliver a public testimony before the Senate subcommittee since the derailment of a Norfolk Southern train in East Palestine, Ohio, in early February.
Buttigieg is also expected to face questions around several near-misses on airport runways in recent months reported by the Federal Aviation Administration.
The event is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. ET.
