Robert Gulley, a senior trial attorney with the Department of Justice, accepted the position Tuesday and is expected to assume his duties as soon as early December, officials said.
...Gulley, an attorney who has been involved in environmental law for about 20 years, will be responsible for bringing the stake holders together and making sure all interests are represented.
In doing so, he
will schedule monthly program meetings, organize stakeholders, write reports and organize the different committees formed as a result of the RIP process. Gulley
, who currently litigates in cases involving natural resource issues arising under the National Environmental Policy Act, Endangered Species Act and Migratory Bird Act, was one of four candidates interviewed for the position.
The 21-member steering committee choose to appoint Gulley
to the position last week at the group's monthly meeting. His
appointment to the position comes nearly two weeks after the Oct. 31 deadline imposed by the legislation that created the RIP process.
