WASHINGTON (Feb. 26)—Jeffrey Runge, administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and Office of Management and Budget official John Graham are among the scheduled witnesses at a House subcommittee hearing Feb. 28 on the implementation of the Transportation Recall Efficiency, Accountability and Documentation Act. Runge was appointed to the top NHTSA post last year, in the midst of the agency gearing up to implement the TREAD Act's provisions. Graham sent a letter to the Department of Transportation earlier this year, saying the OMB would not approve the pending final rule on tire pressure monitoring devices unless NHTSA gave more consideration to "indirect" monitoring systems that work in tandem with anti-lock braking systems.
