Who’s in charge at FMCSA until Trump can nominate a new boss?

Though President Trump’s choice to run the Department of Transportation, Elaine Chao, has been confirmed by the Senate and begun work at the DOT, there’s still a litany of posts Trump must fill at the DOT, including naming a new administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

The post had been occupied by Scott Darling for about two years. His last day in office coincided with President Obama’s.

Since, and until Trump gets around to naming a new boss at FMCSA and the Senate confirms him or her, Deputy Administrator Daphne Jefferson has been running FMCSA, says agency spokesperson Duane DeBruyne.
