Mr. Brown joined ECOS in September 1996, after having assisted in its creation in 1993. From 1985 to 1996 he was the Director of The Council of State Governments' Environmental Policy Center, where he conducted numerous environmental and technical policy studies on state-federal issues. He worked for Kentucky's Division of Air and the Division of Permits; and later he spent four years with private engineering firms. A native Kentuckian, he is the author of numerous articles, monographs, and books on environment and technology.
As a senior attorney and the Director of NRDC's Clean Air Program, Mr. Walke works on national legislation, litigation and EPA rulemakings that will have the greatest impact on ensuring clean air for all Americans. His work focuses on reducing smog, soot and toxic air pollution from power plants, factories, vehicles and other sources. He joined NRDC in 2000 from EPA's Office of General Counsel in Washington, D.C., where he worked as a clean air attorney for over three years. Prior to that, Mr. Walke was an associate attorney at a private law firm in Washington.
Mr. Grizzle began his government career at the U.S. Department of Agriculture as Confidential Assistant to the Secretary, and then served for five years as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Administration where he shared policy and operational oversight responsibilities for seven agencies. In 1988 he was nominated by President Reagan and confirmed by the United States Senate to be the Assistant Administrator for Administration and Resources Management at the U.S. EPA, and remained in that position under President Bush until 1991. The Grizzle Company combines an intimate knowledge of Congress and the Executive Branch with a keen political insight into the legislative and regulatory development process to assist public, private and nonprofit clients.
