Raymond P. Martinez, President Trump’s choice to head the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in his administration, has been confirmed by the U.S. Senate and will now assume the role as Administrator of the federal government’s trucking regulatory body.

Trump nominated Martinez in September. Martinez has spent most of his career in transportation-focused bureaucratic jobs, but he’s never worked in the trucking industry or a trucking-specific oversight role. Since 2010, he’s run the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commision.
