National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Acting Administrator Resigns

The acting administrator of the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has resigned, effective on Aug. 31, 2019.

According to Reuters, she will be replaced as deputy administrator and acting head of the agency by James Owens, NHTSA’s deputy general counsel.

King was appointed as acting administrator in 2017 and earlier this year the Senate Commerce Committee advanced her nomination by President Trump to become the full-time NHTSA administrator, though she was still not confirmed by the full Senate.
