KDOT Secretary elected president of Midwestern transportation group

Kansas Transportation Secretary Mike King was elected president of the Mid America Association of State Transportation Officials (MAASTO) last week at the group’s annual meeting in Indianapolis

MAASTO is a consortium of Midwestern states whose goal is “to foster the development, operation and maintenance of an integrated and balanced transportation system that adequately serves the transportation needs of the 10 member states.”

King said his focus during his one-year term will be the seamless, state-to-state movement of freight in the region.
