In a press release distributed on January 18, Alan Lloyd, Secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA), announced that he will retire effective February 28, 2006 due to personal reasons.  The announcement comes a little more than a year after he was appointed to the position by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
During his tenure as Secretary, the CalEPA implemented a variety of programs and initiatives including the Climate Action Initiative, the California Electronic Recycling Act, the California Hydrogen Network and the California Stationary Fuel Cell Collaborative.  In addition, the agency set the most ambitious course of any state or nation in the world to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
In his final weeks as Secretary, Mr. Lloyd plans to submit the Climate Action Team Report to the governor and the legislature, advance the governor's environmental enforcement initiative and advise the governor on the implementation of his Strategic Growth Plan.
The Governor has not yet announced a replacement, nor is there any speculation on who might succeed Mr. Lloyd.
