EPA chief Whitman resigns

The EPA said today that administrator Christine Todd Whitman has told President Bush that she would resign as of June 27.

The former New Jersey governor reportedly met with President George W. Bush at the White House yesterday to inform him of her decision.

Whitman pushed a sophisticated IT agenda while at EPA, achieving the automation of the agency's docket functions, preparing to launch a pilot project for enterprisewide document management, and fostering the Central Data Exchange project to achieve electronic data flows between the agency and its stakeholders.

The Bush administration is at a phase when resignations can come before the run-up to the 2004 election without distracting from the race, officials have said recently.
