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. by the time anybody gets to such files they will probably have been totally vacuumed anyways. they're pros at this at universities. anything to protect their incomes. Still, a laudable attempt. Let's go for throat though: how about the idea of unionizing football college football players so they can get a fair shake for their work? then if one of the players is a pain in the neck cut them loose instead of protecting them. if that kills the big programs, great, what do they have to do with learning anyways? nada. just another way for universities to rake in the billions even as they skate from paying taxes with their bogus "nonprofit" status.

  2. Um the affidavit from the lawyer is admissible, competent evidence of reasonableness itself. And anybody who had done law work in small claims court would not have blinked at that modest fee. Where do judges come up with this stuff? Somebody is showing a lack of experience and it wasn't the lawyers

  3. My children were taken away a year ago due to drugs, and u struggled to get things on track, and now that I have been passing drug screens for almost 6 months now and not missing visits they have already filed to take my rights away. I need help.....I can't loose my babies. Plz feel free to call if u can help. Sarah at 765-865-7589

  4. Females now rule over every appellate court in Indiana, and from the federal southern district, as well as at the head of many judicial agencies. Give me a break, ladies! Can we men organize guy-only clubs to tell our sob stories about being too sexy for our shirts and not being picked for appellate court openings? Nope, that would be sexist! Ah modernity, such a ball of confusion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmRsWdK0PRI

  5. LOL thanks Jennifer, thanks to me for reading, but not reading closely enough! I thought about it after posting and realized such is just what was reported. My bad. NOW ... how about reporting who the attorneys were raking in the Purdue alum dollars?
