The White House announced on June 10 that Ken Kopocis, Senior Counsel on the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure since 2008, has been nominated to be the next EPA Assistant Administrator for the Office of Water. Kopocis would succeed Peter Silva, who resigned in February. Nancy Stoner, who previously was deputy assistant administrator for water, has been serving as acting assistant administrator for water since that time. From 2006-2008, Kopocis served as Deputy Staff Director for Infrastructure on the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. The Environment and Public Works Committee has not yet scheduled a confirmation hearing.
