The long-time leader of the National Transportation Safety Board is stepping down at the end of the month. Chairwoman Debbie Hersman says it’s been “a great ride.” Under her leadership, the board has challenged the transportation industry and other government agencies in the name of passenger safety. Hersman told Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp she is moving on to what she calls a second “dream job” as the head of a safety advocacy group.
