WASHINGTON (June 11)—Both the White House and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are mum as to whether Jeffrey Runge, an emergency room physician, will be the Bush administration's choice to head the agency. A NHTSA spokesman said the agency hasn't yet received nomination papers for Runge or anyone else. Runge, assistant chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, N.C., was named as a possible NHTSA nominee in May by Automotive News, a sister publication of Rubber & Plastics News. Other news sources have since mentioned Runge as a contender for the NHTSA post.
