The White House has nominated a new assistant secretary for environmental management to oversee cleanup at U.S. Energy Department sites, including Savannah River Site.
Monica Regalbuto was nominated to replace David Huizenga, who served in the position for the past 2½ years. Huizenga will return to the National Nuclear Security Administration, where he worked previously.
Regalbuto is currently the deputy assistant secretary for fuel cycle technologies in the office of nuclear energy for the DOE. She is a researcher at Argonne National Laboratory in Argonne, Ill.
