President Nominates Chief of Enforcement at EPA

She was the top attorney for the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee when it was chaired by Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe and now Susan Bodine has been tapped by the President to head the EPA’s enforcement division.

Bodine was the committee’s top attorney since January 2015. On Friday, President Trump announced her nomination to be assistant administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance.

If she’s confirmed, it would be her second time in a leadership position at the agency. She previously was the Assistant Administrator of the Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response from 2006 to 2009 during the Bush administration.

Bodine also previously was staff director of the Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment of the U.S. House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.
