White House Commends Outgoing EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson

White House Commends Outgoing EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson

The White House on Thursday released a statement from President Obama on the announcement from Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa Jackson that she will resign late next month:

Over the last four years, Lisa Jackson has shown an unwavering commitment to the health of our families and our children. Under her leadership, the EPA has taken sensible and important steps to protect the air we breathe and the water we drink, including implementing the first national standard for harmful mercury pollution, taking important action to combat climate change under the Clean Air Act, and playing a key role in establishing historic fuel economy standards that will save the average American family thousands of dollars at the pump, while also slashing carbon pollution. Lisa has been an important part of my team, and I want to thank her for her service in my Administration and her tireless efforts to benefit the American people. I wish her all the best wherever her future takes her.
