President Obama nominates Rogoff to lead FTA

Posted on April 8, 2009

On Wednesday, President Barack Obama nominated Peter M. Rogoff to succeed James S. Simpson as head of the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

Rogoff is an acknowledged expert in the area of federal infrastructure budgeting and finance, having had an active role in the financing of each of the last three comprehensive surface transportation reauthorization bills dating back to the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991. He served for 22 years on the staff of the Senate Appropriations Committee, including 14 years as the Democratic Staff Director of its Transportation Subcommittee. 

Additionally, Rogoff was instrumental in the establishment of new user fee regimes to finance expanded security measures following 9/11 and advising policymakers on the operating and capital needs of Amtrak, including the initiation and financing of high-speed Acela service, as well as the financing of dozens of new light rail and bus rapid transit systems across the U.S.

Rogoff is also a recipient of the U.S. Coast Guard Distinguished Public Service Award and the Lester P. Lamm Memorial Award for outstanding leadership and dedication to U.S. highway transportation programs.
