"The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) top internal watchdog is resigning after eight years in the position.
Arthur Elkins announced Tuesday that his last day will be Oct. 12, after which he’ll take a job outside the federal government. He did not specify the name of his next employer or the type of work he'll be doing.
Elkins has been in his post since 2010. He took on a higher profile in recent months as his office launched numerous investigations into alleged ethics and spending violations by former Administrator Scott Pruitt, who resigned in July."
