***Check Back For Updates***

A recent article in the ABA journal said that Sussman may be on the short list for Obama's Secretary Of the Epa.

According to the piece:

Before retiring from Latham & Watkins, Sussman represented a wide variety of corporate and trade association clients before government regulatory bodies on issues involving environmental rules and toxic torts. He was deputy administrator of the EPA early in Clinton's first term and then went on to chair the environmental law practice group at Latham & Watkins. A senior fellow at the left-leaning Center for American Progress and a member of the board of directors of the Environmental Law Institute, Sussman is a highly regarded expert on the practical aspects of energy policy and climate change.
