Inhofe Statement on Carol Browner White House Departure

Washington, D.C. - Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, made the following statement today in response to the announcement that Carol Browner will soon be leaving her position as Director of the White House Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy.

"Carol Browner and I have long been on opposite sides of many issues," Senator Inhofe said. "I would say that I'm happy to see her leave only because she was so effective in advancing her side. Given her considerable knowledge and experience in navigating the bureaucracy, she will be irreplaceable. In the spirit of unity, I wish her all the best."
