Each Governor appoints a highway safety representative to manage the state's highway safety program, including administration of the federal Highway Safety Community Grant program. The Governor's representative also serves as a liaison between the governor and the highway safety community. These professionals and their staffs are a great resource on all highway safety issues, including driver licensing. The Governors' representatives have a national organization in Washington:
