From the Star-Ledger today:

lisa jackson.jpgLisa Jackson, the former Department of Environmental Protection commissioner who just days ago became Gov. Jon Corzine's chief of staff, will be nominated to serve as the top environmental official in Barack Obama's administration, according to Democratic officials.

If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Jackson, 46, will become the first African-American woman to head the Environmental Protection Agency, where she worked for 19 years before she was tapped for DEP chief in 2006. She would join former Gov. Christie Whitman, who was chosen in 2000 by President Bush, as New Jerseyans who left prominent Statehouse posts to lead the EPA.
