"White House Announces Regulations, DOE Nominees"

"President Joe Biden has selected environmental law expert Richard Revesz to lead his regulatory office, a move widely seen as a victory for the establishment wing over the progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

Revesz, who founded the think tank Institute for Policy Integrity, has deep experience in environmental law and policy. He has spent years on EPA advisory panels and was in the running to lead the agency before the job went to Michael Regan.

The pick to lead the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs comes after the post remained vacant for nearly two years, irritating some advocates who argue the office holds unmatched power. E&E News reported last month the White House was zeroing in on Revesz (Greenwire, Aug. 22)."
