Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administrator Annette Sandberg changed her mind on her departure date and is staying on the job for an extra month.
Sandberg had announced last month that she would leave March 1. Deputy Administrator Warren Hoemann was set to take her place on an acting basis, but now the question of who will be her successor is back on the table.
Sandberg testified Thursday before a House subcommittee about low-fare busses, which have been a target of complaints by safety advocates and disability rights advocates. Also this week, two lawsuits were filed in a federal appeals court to challenge the latest hours of service rules for truck drivers.
