Deputy Labor Secretary Tapped To Head Fed E-Gov Panel

Steven Law replaces Samuel Bodman, the new Energy Secretary, as head of the President's Management Council Subcommittee on E-government.

The last deputy secretary to chair the President's Management Council Subcommittee on E-government just joined George W. Bush's cabinet. Time will tell whether the same promotion will be in the cards for Steven Law.

The Bush administration tapped Law, deputy secretary of the Department of Labor, to head the E-gov panel, which helps promote and expand E-government across federal agencies and among American citizens. Law replaces former Treasury and Commerce Department deputy secretary Samuel Bodman, who was confirmed by the Senate Monday to be Secretary of Energy.

Clay Johnson, deputy director for management at the Office of Management and Budget, credited Law with making the Labor Department a leader among federal agencies that focus on performance and results.

Labor is one of only four cabinet agencies to have earned four green and one yellow rating in successfully implementing the President's Management Agenda. E-government is one of the components of the management agenda.
