WASHINGTON—Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is resigning from his post.

He is the only Republican still on President Obama’s first-term cabinet.

The former Illinois Congressman helped implement several safety measures and highway projects.

LaHood also worked with automakers and environmentalists to develop tougher fuel efficiency standards for new cars.

LaHood says he intends to remain as Treasury Secretary until a replacement is confirmed.
