Commerce Department will need new leader

Acting Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank is leaving to become chancellor at the University of Wisconsin.

Here's a statement from President Obama.

You'll recall that Blank became acting secretary after an incident in California involving former Commerce Secretary John Bryson.

The Commerce Department is hugely important to the commercial fishing industry, housing agencies such as the National Marine Fisheries Service and the National Weather Service.
