President Bush will nominate Lyons Gray to be the new chief financial officer of the Environmental Protection Agency.
The president has forwarded the nomination to the Senate.
Gray served for more than 12 years in the North Carolina General Assembly after being appointed in 1989 and subsequently re-elected, and was senior co-chairman of the House Finance Committee.
More recently, he served as president of the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership, an organization helping promote economic development in the North Carolina city.
Gray replaces outgoing CFO Charles Johnson, who was tapped earlier this year to serve
as CFO and assistant secretary for budget, technology and finance at the Health and Human Services Department.
