Top Interior Official To Leave In June, Creating Key Opening

change text size

WASHINGTON - The Interior Department's second-in-command plans to leave the agency at the end of June, creating a high-level opening at the agency responsible for oil and natural gas production on U.S. lands.

David Hayes, the deputy secretary who served under former secretary Ken Salazar, announced his departure Tuesday.

Mr. Hayes surfaced earlier this year as one of many possible candidates who could replace Mr. Salazar, who stepped down earlier this month. The job has gone to former REI Chief Executive Sally Jewell.

Mr. Hayes will serve as a senior fellow at the Hewlett Foundation, a non-profit group that awards grants to address environmental problems, and will teach at Stanford Law School.
