I'm Ari Shapiro in Washington, and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles last year on this very day Pete Buddha judge was campaigning for the Democratic presidential nomination in Boone, Iowa. Well. Today, a Senate committee approved his nomination for secretary of transportation in his one time rivals Cabinet and should the full Senate confirm him. The former mayor of South Bend is on track to be the youngest person to lead the Transportation Department, the first openly gay Cabinet member and, of course, a key player in implementing some of the many executive orders President Biden has issued in the one week he has been president. Booty Judge Welcome Thank you. Good to be with you. All right. Well, there's a lot to get to, but I first want to start with a general question about your new job to be transportation. It's this huge department with oversight over rail air roads, cars. Your predecessor, Elaine Chao had a background at D O T. So I'm curious. How did you approach learning all the nuts and bolts of this as you prepare to take on this totally new job? Well, it is a large and complex department over 50,000 employees and a budget in the tens of billions of dollars, and fortunately, I've been supported by a next ordinary. Transition team, helping to make clear all the issues that we face and I'm arriving with something of a bottom up perspective on what it's like to engage federal agencies like the Department of Transportation. You know, there are so many cities across the country like the city that I left lead that have a lot at stake in making sure that we meet our goals in terms of climate job creation. Equity and, of course safety in this department, and I think having that perspective of having interface with enormous federal bureaucracies from the local perspective will be something else that I can offer in the department. Okay, let's turn to the executive orders that I mentioned today. President Biden signed a syriza of executive orders on climate change, but The thing is with climate change. You have this issue where there is some buy in from industry on things like fuel efficiency standards, But there is pushback some in Congress, so How do you turn Executive orders into lasting policy? If you can't get them passed by Congress that well, we're gonna make every effort to have legislative action, too. We need all of the levers working in the same direction. I think the most important thing we have to do is put an end to the false construct. That says that this is about Climate versus jobs look, climate policy is jobs policy, and the reality is the on leeway to have a sustainable growing economy is to grow jobs in a way that helps not hurt our climate goals. If you look at the president's executive order, if you look at the work that's going to be done, for example, really, I think supercharging the American electric vehicle industry, with government leading the way in its own purchasing, but also supporting consumers being able to to thrive with electric vehicles. That's unlocking a huge economic opportunity in places like the Industrial Midwest, where I come from where we have a chance to build these. What about when it comes to Cole? I mean, let's look at the Senate. We're talking about a 50 50 split in the Senate. How do you persuade someone like, say Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who comes from Ah coal producing state or minority leader Mitch McConnell, who's also from a coal state. How do you convince them? To vote against their state's financial interests. Well, I just don't accept the premise that it is against the state's financial interests. At least not if we get the policies right. Of course, we need to make sure we are supporting workers in industries and communities. That are going through that transition as we move to a less fossil fuel dependent economy. But on the whole, even in these particular states, this will be a win, especially if you compare it to the cost of doing nothing at the end of the day. This is about protecting against the destruction of lives and property due to climate change, and that's the course we're on. It's why the president's leadership in order to make sure we change. It is so important, no matter what state you live in, Okay, let's talk a little bit about More about what you'll be dealing with. When you're confirmed. If you're confirmed as transportation secretary, public transit systems throughout the country have been struggling for years and then even more so during this pandemic because ridership has further declined in many regions, where do you even start to try to reinvigorate these systems in a post pandemic world? Well. It starts with the president's rescue package, which identifies $20 billion to support our transit agencies that have taken such a blow. But the reality is just trying. Tomo, prop them up or get back to pre coded levels isn't really good enough when you consider the need for us to have Stronger transit systems. It's important for safety. It's important for climate. It's important for economic growth, and it's important for equity because we know that in many parts of the country, there are transit desserts. Disproportionately in black, brown and tribal communities that cut people off from economic opportunity. But again if we get this right, this is a great example of the kind of investment that really does pay for its health because it unlocks opportunity. It gives people alternatives for how to get around and it's going to make our our economy and our community stronger. Well, you're right. Resuscitating these transit systems is going to take a huge infusion of cash well beyond the $20 billion that you mentioned, Where is that cash going to come from well or going to need to work with Congress in order to make sure we identify sustainable long term funding streams, But let's also recognize That when it comes to any spending, you know some spending does pay for itself. Not all spending on certainly not all tax cuts to do that, but it's hard to think of a better bang for your buck than investing in robust transit in transportation infrastructure. Well, I'm trying to I'm thinking about just, you know, convincing lawmakers who are from states that aren't exactly public transit. Hubs that aren't exactly teeming with public transit. How do you convince those lawmakers to fork over this scale of money when we've seen Republican lawmakers throughout this pandemic, resist approving money for state and local governments? Well, this is why I think it's so important to broaden the way we talk and think about transit. It's Of course, it impacts our biggest cities, but not only our biggest cities. That's why I was so glad to see the president's commitment to support Any community 100,000 larger with certain kinds of transit resource is in rural communities to my hometown of South Bend will make a world of difference to be able to strengthen the ability for our bus routes, for example, to serve more people, And these are exactly the way I unfortunately have to leave it there.

"It's the make room had show We're here until noon and appreciate you spending part of your time with this final hour of the show today, this Monday. Um The executive actions being taken this week. There are so many executive actions coming out now from the White House. That they are now done by themes. So today is by American Day, which I kind of liked, and that's very patriotic. Let's buy American, so Joe Biden is going to do things. Like re define how by American is there's going to be a website for a corporation's doing business with the federal government and the federal government, buying American goods and services. I've got no problem with that. None whatsoever. That is interesting that when the this kind of idea was coming out of the White House for the last four years, it was seen as nationalist and it's isolationist, and it's going to start a trade war and we have to do that. But I have no problem with the idea of our government. If you're buying goods and services that you're buying them from American companies, no problem whatsoever. We I talked a little bit about NAFTA and earlier today and what it would do tow the new U. S. M. C A. Because Canada's concerned about the sentiment are we going to be shifting from a lot of business we do with the Canadians here in Arizona are number one trading partner. As a state is Mexico. And so all of this talk about we're gonna get to immigration. That's one of the days. But all of the talk about Ah, bad relationship with Mexico is not true. We have a great relationship with the Mexican people and with local Mexican government south of our border. We do a lot of business with Mexico. There is an issue. Federally because the borders are are are not under our control. That is a federal problem in a federal issue. The problem has been. Arizona pays a huge price when our government isn't working with the Mexican government or the Mexican government isn't doing enough to stop migration north into our country illegally, that there is a is a dual purpose here. And so that's always been an issue which will get to because that's one of the days so day one is by American Day Day two is Equity Day. Now this is a broad range of executive orders. They're going to stop disallowing the air, stopping the moratorium on transgender troops Joining the military. One of the other thing is being talked about is his title. Nine schools that if you are a school that gets federal dollars that you are now going to have to let transgender athletes playing women's sports I got to tell you. I don't want to get off too much on one subject, but that's going to be a disaster for female athletes. It is unfair and it's a disaster for female athletes. And you're gonna watch that this whole idea that we've LGBT Q community and and when you talk about things being gender specific, and that female athletes are never paid or respected as much as male athletes These worlds are going to collide with this, and it's not going to be fair to these female athletes. And I think this is where a lot of this will come to a head if it's happening, But Equity day is going to be tomorrow. And then Wednesday, Climate Day There's already going to be a fight about that. There's a tribe in Oklahoma. I'm sorry. In Utah. The youths are saying that the new moratoriums that are being put on drilling that are coming are a direct attack to the economy of this tribe. Because of the drilling that they do, and this is going to be re. This is gonna be a tough fight The fight against fracking. What's happening? We are seeing a real cost of real jobs and real dollars will be spent by the American people with these policies. If there's one area that you are going to see the American average American family working class Americans are going to pay a lot more money. It's going to be the policy shift on climate change. Without a doubt. Because you're gonna pay more to pump They're probably going to shift in gas taxes. We know that Pete Buddha Judge and don't be surprised if one of the ideas that they float isn't a per mile tax. All of you people that went out there and spent all that money on the Tesla. So that you've got battery operated vehicles or that you have hybrid cars that are not uses much gasoline, but you're still using the freeways. They say you're still using them and you're not paying any taxes, so they incentivize the people to buy them. They hammer the industry with all of these regulations and efficiency standards, which means you're buying less gasoline because you're using less gasoline with these energy efficient vehicles. So they're not collecting the tax revenue. So how are they going to do it? Pete Booted jizz is gonna push really hard for a per mile gas tax. Do you have any idea what that's going to do over the road truckers what that's going to do The delivery drivers, people that air ride share operators if you are a ride share operator right now. What is it going to do to you? When you find out you're going to pay a per mile tax that you drive your vehicle? It is absolutely a disaster. But all that stuff's coming on Wednesday. Wednesday is going to be the beginning of that with orders on the Phoenix CLA Phoenix I'm sorry Paris climate accord were re entering that and others, so that's Wednesday. Thursday Healthcare Day. Gonna take highly anticipated action among pro choice advocates rescinding the Mexico City policy, which bans the U. S from funding for foreign organizations that promote provide or promote abortion, So we're going back. To a very pro choice stance internationally, where we will be sending our tax dollars to other countries to promote and do abortions. Wherever you stand on the issue of abortion, legality, our tax dollars and other nations doesn't make any sense to me, but that's the direction we're going, and that begins on Thursday and finally on Friday. It's going to be immigration Day, according to the memo, obtained by the Hill likely to sign an order related to regional migration and border processing Recent Trump administration policies on asylum, they also will sign an order of assigning a task force to reunify migrant families. They will now direct a nim, Edie it review of the public charge rule and other actions to remove barriers and restore trust. And the legal immigration system according to this, so you know, here in Arizona, what happens on the, um What happens on the Immigration front is now we're going to see the border issue become a bigger one that affects us here in Arizona, the immigration issue itself. I am very pro immigrant, very, very pro immigration, legal immigration. But there is a big difference between who and how we let people into this country legally and what we're doing to stop the human trafficking and the drugs and the horrible things that go with an open border. And we are addressing one, which is migration. Without addressing the other, which is the difference between legal and illegal immigration. When they call it migration. They lump everybody together and you go talkto a legal immigrant to this country. It's a slap in the face to illegal immigrant to combine the two And well, so that's what that's the direction that we're going right now, in a moment. It's Did you hear this?
