NTSB Postpones Most Wanted List Unveiling

The kickoff event for the updated MWL has been rescheduled for Feb. 4 at 10 a.m. EST. It was previously set for Wednesday, Jan. 9.

Thanks to the partial government shutdown in Washington, D.C., and beyond, we'll have to wait a bit longer to read the National Transportation Safety Board's 2019-2020 Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements.

NTSB posted an announcement Jan. 4, helpfully sharing it on its Twitter feed even though the account has not been actively used or monitored during the shutdown. The announcement said the kickoff event for the updated MWL has been rescheduled for Feb. 4 at 10 a.m. EST. It was previously set for Wednesday, Jan. 9.

The rescheduled event is set to be held in the same venue, the Holeman Lounge of the National Press Club. It will start with opening remarks from NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt, who will then announce the Most Wanted List. He will join NTSB Vice Chairman Bruce Landsberg and Board Members Jennifer Homendy and Earl Weener for a moderated panel discussion about the items on the list and related safety recommendations, with a question and answer session following the panel discussion.

The safety board will host a Twitter Q&A during the event, with board member media availability to follow.
