The news just crossed the wire that Lisa Jackson, EPA administrator and possibly the most anti-business member of the Obama administration has resigned:

Environmental Protection Agency Administration Lisa Jackson says she’s stepping down after nearly four years on the job.

Jackson announced her departure in a statement Thursday. She gave no particular reason for leaving but said she was ready for new challenges, time with her family and new opportunities to make a difference.

She says she’s leaving the agency, in her words, “confident the ship is sailing in the right direction.”
