Bethesda delegate Bronrott headed to Obama administration

Bronrott mub.jpgMaryland state Del. Bill Bronrott (D-Bethesda) announced Thursday that he will leave his Annapolis post later this month to join the Obama administration.

Bronrott will take the number two job at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which enforces rules on buses and semis. He's a longtime advocate of highway, pedestrian and bike safety, and has been active against drunk driving. He has represented District 16 in the House of Delegates since 1999.

One major initiative Bronrott will be part of as deputy administrator: seeking to enforce pending rules that would limit how long bus drivers can be on the road. "Fatigue is one of the key causes of accidents," said Candice Tolliver, a Department of Transportation spokeswoman.
