Selection of USGS Director reported

The word here at the State Geologists' meeting is that a new director of the U.S. Geological Survey has been selected and the public announcement is expected in the next 2-3 weeks.

There have been no rumors or insider information leaked about the selection, in contrast to previous USGS appointments. Even now, there are no names circulating about who the nominee is.

Yesterday, Acting Director Suzette Kimball told us she was looking forward to returning to her permanent position.
