Trump's top energy adviser is leaving the White House
Mike Catanzaro, the top White House staffer on domestic energy and environmental policy, will step down and return to the private sector next week as a consultant and adviser and CGCN Group. Francis Brooke, who currently works in Vice President Mike Pence's office, will replace Catanzaro on April 30.
Why it matters, from Axios' Amy Harder: Catanzaro was the adviser behind President Trump's top energy priorities, including repealing regulations and ethanol mandate reform. His departure will leave a vacuum of policy guidance even greater than that of George David Banks, his counterpart on international energy issues who resigned.
