Former U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood will deliver the closing keynote address at Hart Energy’s World LNG Fuels conference, scheduled February 2-4, 2015, at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas.
During his time as Secretary, LaHood led the agency of more 55,000 employees and a $70 billion budget that oversees air, maritime, and surface transportation missions. Prior to becoming secretary, LaHood served in the U.S. House of Representatives from the 18th District of Illinois from 1995 to 2009.
