An Indianapolis attorney with years of environmental experience has been appointed by the Environmental Protection Agency director to the agency's Office of Air and Radiation. Janet McCabe, executive director of Indianapolis' Improving Kids' Environment, a nonprofit advocacy group that works to reduce environmental threats to children's health, will join the government agency as the principal deputy assistant administrator of OAR.

McCabe came to Indiana in 1993 and worked for the Indiana Department of Environmental Management's Office of Air Quality, serving as director beginning in 1998. She also worked as an adjunct professor in the Department of Public Health at Indiana University School of Medicine. McCabe has been a member of EPA's Clean Air Act Advisory Committee and Children's Health Protection Advisory Group, and the National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences Council.

Before moving to Indiana, McCabe was Massachusetts' assistant secretary for environmental affairs and assistant attorney general in the state's Environmental Protection Division. She graduated from Harvard Law School in 1983.

McCabe is scheduled to begin at the EPA on Nov. 9, where she will help manage programs designed to improve air quality, address global climate change, and implement indoor air and radiation programs.

  1. Such things are no more elections than those in the late, unlamented Soviet Union.

  2. It appears the police and prosecutors are allowed to change the rules halfway through the game to suit themselves. I am surprised that the congress has not yet eliminated the right to a trial in cases involving any type of forensic evidence. That would suit their foolish law and order police state views. I say we eliminate the statute of limitations for crimes committed by members of congress and other government employees. Of course they would never do that. They are all corrupt cowards!!!

  3. Poor Judge Brown probably thought that by slavishly serving the godz of the age her violations of 18th century concepts like due process and the rule of law would be overlooked. Mayhaps she was merely a Judge ahead of her time?

  4. in a lawyer discipline case Judge Brown, now removed, was presiding over a hearing about a lawyer accused of the supposedly heinous ethical violation of saying the words "Illegal immigrant." (IN re Barker) http://www.in.gov/judiciary/files/order-discipline-2013-55S00-1008-DI-429.pdf .... I wonder if when we compare the egregious violations of due process by Judge Brown, to her chiding of another lawyer for politically incorrectness, if there are any conclusions to be drawn about what kind of person, what kind of judge, what kind of apparatchik, is busy implementing the agenda of political correctness and making off-limits legit advocacy about an adverse party in a suit whose illegal alien status is relevant? I am just asking the question, the reader can make own conclsuion. Oh wait-- did I use the wrong adjective-- let me rephrase that, um undocumented alien?

  5. of course the bigger questions of whether or not the people want to pay for ANY bussing is off limits, due to the Supreme Court protecting the people from DEMOCRACY. Several decades hence from desegregation and bussing plans and we STILL need to be taking all this taxpayer money to combat mostly-imagined "discrimination" in the most obviously failed social program of the postwar period.
