EPA chief Lisa Jackson stepping down for Obama's 2nd term

The administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, Lisa Jackson, will resign her post at the beginning of President Barack Obama's second term, Jackson has announced.

Jackson gave no reason for leaving the position, which she has held for four years. In her tenure, Jackson rigorously defended the EPA from attacks by Republicans, who considered many EPA regulations "job-killers." 

She was subjected to questioning in Republican-led House committees numerous times since 2010, including treatment that the New York Times said "bordered on the disrespectful."
