Schregardus Still Gets a Say in Environmental Issues

Washington, D.C. - Donald Schregardus, the former Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official nominated by President Bush to head enforcement at the U.S. EPA but knocked down by strong Senate opposition, has been named deputy assistant secretary of the U.S. Navy for the environment.

Schregardus' EPA nomination was opposed by environmental groups who said that he had failed to enforce federal clean air and water standards while in office.

It is unclear what responsibilities Schregardus will have in his new job, but he most likely will oversee the cleanup of hazardous waste sites for the U.S. military.
