CASPER, Wyoming — The director of the Wyoming Department of Transportation has been elected president of the board of directors for a national organization of state transportation officials.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1HMk3rz ) John Cox's primary emphasis with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials will be to advance a multiyear surface transportation reauthorization bill in Congress.

He says "the nation's aging transportation systems need to be maintained and modernized, and that's going to require greater investment."

Former Gov. Dave Freudenthal appointed Cox as director in 2005, and Gov. Matt Mead reappointed him in 2011.

Cox previously served for 28 years in law enforcement, including as commanding officer of the Wyoming Highway Patrol from 1998 to 2005.
