ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) Montgomery County Delegate Bill Bronrott will soon join several other former Maryland officials in the Obama administration.
Bronrott announced Thursday that he will take a job with the U.S. Department of Transportation effective April 27. He will become the deputy administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, where he will work to reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities involving large trucks and buses.
During 12 years in the Maryland House, Bronrott, a Democrat, has frequently backed legislation to make roads safer.
He will join former Maryland Transportation Secretary John Porcari, now deputy secretary at the U.S. Transportation Department and former Maryland Labor Secretary Tom Perez, now an assistant attorney general with the U.S. Justice Department's Civil Rights Division.
