to Take Utility Position


: WASTE NEWS - 9/5/03
:
: John Pemberton, EPA air official, resigns to take job with Southern Co.
:
: WASHINGTON (Sept. 4) -- One week after the U.S. Environmental
Protection
: Agency announced a major reform of the Clean Air Act that benefits
industry,
: a high-level EPA air official is resigning to take a job with Southern
Co.,
: one of the nation´s largest electric utilities.
: John Pemberton, chief of staff for the EPA´s assistant administrator
for air
: and radiation, will join Southern Co. as a senior executive dealing
: primarily with Senate affairs, according to a company spokeswoman.
:
: The Natural Resources Defense Council criticized Pemberton´s departure
in
: the wake of what the environmentalist group refers to as the "gutting"
of
: the Clean Air Act´s New Source Review provisions. The changes make it
easier
: for utilities and industries to improve operational efficiency without
the
: expense of installing the latest air pollution control technology.
:
: Pemberton could not be reached for comment, but a Southern Co.
spokeswoman
: denied that the company´s hiring of the EPA official had any connection
with
: the agency´s actions. Pemberton had done little work on the New Source
: Review revisions and immediately recused himself from any issues
potentially
: involving Southern Co. once he began discussing employment
opportunities
: with the company.
:
: The EPA also said the departure does not pose a conflict of interest.
