Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Republican leader Sam Graves (R-MO) and the top Republicans of T&I’s six subcommittees wrote to Department of Transportation (DOT) Secretary Pete Buttigieg to highlight their commitment to exercising their investigative and legislative powers to ensure the Biden Administration does not continue to exceed its constitutional authority and undermine Congress’ lawmaking powers.

The Members highlighted concerns about the promulgation of recent DOT rules and guidance materials which they stated, “seek to implement policies that were either rejected by Congress or are demonstrative of perverse agency decision-making.”  Members noted that “[t]his is compounded by Biden Administration-led efforts to impose partisan policies government-wide” and that “it appears as though DOT and the Administration are implementing these policies that violate the spirit of law.”
