Nancy Sutley Leaves Important Legacy
CEQ chair was “a driving force” on key environmental issues

WASHINGTON (December 3, 2013) – The following is a statement by Frances Beinecke, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council, upon the announcement by Nancy Sutley that she plans to resign as chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

“Nancy Sutley has been at the nexus of key progress on environment protection since 2009. In particular, she was a driving force in the creation and implementation of our National Ocean Policy – an important legacy for President Obama. Nancy’s successor will have big shoes to fill.”
