What does LaHood mean for NextGen?

That’s the question of the day, after reports emerged last night that Rep. Ray LaHood (R-Ill.) will be tapped as Transportation Secretary. LaHood is retiring from his Congressional seat after serving on the House Appropriations committee for several years; he served on the aviation subcommittee back in 2000 and is considered a friend of general aviation. Bloomberg has a pretty good political (i.e. not aviation-focused) wrap-up here.
