"Regulatory Czar Leaving White House To Return To Harvard Law School"

"Cass Sunstein, a top adviser to President Obama who functions as a gatekeeper on federal regulations, is leaving the White House to return to Harvard Law School."

"Obama heralded Sunstein, administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, 'for his friendship and for his years of exceptional service.'

'For the last three and a half years, Cass Sunstein has helped drive a series of historic accomplishments on behalf of the American people,' Obama said in a statement. 'From putting in place lifesaving protections for America’s families, to eliminating tens of millions of hours of paperwork burdens for our nation’s citizens and businesses, Cass has shown that it is possible to support economic growth without sacrificing health, safety, and the environment.'"
