Tuesday saw the Biden White House reportedly announce that Ann Carlson’s candidacy to lead the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) had been withdrawn.

The nomination for Carlson, who now serves as chief counsel, was made by Biden in February and sent to the Senate on March 27.

According to a university statement, Carlson, a law professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, was appointed interim administrator of the NHTSA in September.

According to the White House, the administration informed the Senate of the withdrawal.

The Senate Commerce Committee’s Republican members expressed their worries about Carlson’s past career and her work at the NHTSA in a letter to her on May 1.

Her support for fuel economy rules, which have drawn legal criticism, was noted by critics as a cause for worry.

Additionally, they claim that she was hired by the NHTSA to advance Biden’s radical climate change agenda.
