In the midst of last-minute congressional efforts to avoid a shortfall in the Highway Trust Fund, Foxx will speak about the need for long-term transportation investment, arguing that the ongoing lack of certainty and stability poses an even greater threat to the country's ability to grow.

Foxx is a former mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, who became transportation secretary last year.
