Department of Transportation

The Department of Transportation is a federal cabinet department governed by the Secretary of Transportation and dedicated to transportation issues. It previously oversaw the Transportation Security Administration and the Coast Guard, but those two agencies were both transferred to the Department of Homeland Security in 2003. The Federal Aviation Administration was folded into the Department of Transportation when it was founded in 1967. EFF has targeted the FAA with FOIA requests and lawsuits pertaining to its granting of drone authorization certificates.
