There is speculation that President George W. Bush is about to select Mary Peters as the new head of the Federal Highway Administration, according to a report from the American Traffic Safety Services Association.

As administrator of the largest agency within the U.S. Department of Transportation, Peters would preside over a budget of $30 billion. She is a 15-year veteran of the Arizona Department of Transportation, an agency that she currently heads.

The White House press office declined to confirm the appointment.
