Former SoCal power exec to head Commerce

The White House today announced President Obama will nominate John Bryson as commerce secretary.

If confirmed, the former CEO of Southern California electric power company Edison International will succeed Gary Locke, the former Washington state governor now in line to become ambassador to China.

The commerce secretary, of course, is a highly relevant position for fish folk, as the Commerce Department includes such agencies as the National Marine Fisheries Service and the National Weather Service.

It will be interesting to see a case where NRDC suing NMFS over its fisheries will be a suit against the organization's co-founder: NRDC v. Bryson.
