Meet EPA's New Second in Command: Henry Darwin

A former Arizona state official brought to EPA by Scott Pruitt to streamline agency operations got a promotion yesterday in the wake of the embattled administrator's departure.

Henry Darwin is taking on the duties of deputy administrator at EPA.

Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler announced Darwin's move up yesterday in his address to employees. Darwin joined EPA last summer as assistant deputy administrator and chief of operations.

An EPA spokesman told E&E News that while he is serving as acting administrator, Wheeler will be delegating his deputy administrator responsibilities to Darwin.
