Jackson Confirmed as EPA Administrator

Lisa P. Jackson has been confirmed by the Senate as the new administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, according to a report in Congressional Quarterly.

Jackson’s nomination was approved by a voice vote late Thursday.

Senators also approved President Barack Obama’s nomination of Nancy H. Sutley as chairperson of the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

Sutley, 46, is a former deputy mayor of Los Angeles. She also worked as an energy policy advisor to former California Gov. Gray Davis, as an official in the Clinton administration EPA, and as a deputy secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency.

She was a member of the California State Water Resources Control Board between 2003-2005.
