Michael Catanzaro, head of domestic energy and environment issues at the White House's National Economic Council, announced on Tuesday that he plans to leave the job next week.
Catanzaro, who played a major role in the rollback of the Obama administration's Clean Power Plan and its Clean Water Rule, said he is returning to CGCN Group, a Republican lobbying firm where he'll work in a consulting and advisory role, Greenwire reports.
His departure comes just two months after George David Banks quit as President Donald Trump's leading adviser for international energy and environment issues because of his inability to get a security clearance.
It's unclear who will replace Catanzaro, who previously worked for then-House Speaker John Boehner and Sen. Jim Inhofe and at EPA and the White House during the George W. Bush administration.
