New e-gov committee chairman moving to Treasury

Samuel W. Bodman, new chairman of the E-Government Committee of the President's Management Council, has been tapped to move from his No. 2 job at the Commerce Department to the same post at the Treasury Department.

President Bush on Friday announced plans to nominate Bodman to become deputy secretary of Treasury. Bodman currently is deputy secretary of Commerce.

He would replace Kenneth W. Dam, who in August returned to teach at the University of Chicago School of Law. Bodman took on the e-government advisory job last month. (Click for Oct. 23 GCN coverage).
