Lawmakers approve Kemp’s appointment to Georgia DOT post

Georgia lawmakers Friday approved Gov. Brian Kemp’s appointment to a key post at the state’s transportation department.

Jannine Miller will be planning director at the Georgia Department of Transportation. In that post, she’ll help set the agency’s agenda for road construction projects. In essence, she’ll be Kemp’s point person at the department.

Miller comes to GDOT with plenty of transportation experience. Among other things, she is a former senior advisor to U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao and was a transportation advisor to then-Gov. Sonny Perdue.

Kemp nominated Miller to the posts in January. The House and Senate transportation committees approved her nomination unanimously Friday.

She will replace Jay Roberts, who left the post to become a lobbyist last year.
