Beehler to Lead DoD Environmental Policy

Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Installations and Environment
Raymond F. DuBois announced today the selection of Alex Albert Beehler
as the assistant deputy under secretary of defense for Environment,
Safety, and Occupational Health.  Beehler replaces John Paul Woodley who
was recently appointed assistant secretary of the Army for civil works.

Beehler will serve as the principal assistant and advisor to DuBois for
all environmental, safety, and occupational health policies and programs
in the Department of Defense.  Those programs include cleanup at active
and closing bases, compliance with environmental laws, conservation of
natural and cultural resources, pollution prevention, environmental
technology, fire protection, safety and explosive safety, and pest
management and disease control for Defense activities worldwide.  He
will also advise DuBois on international military agreements and
programs pertaining to environmental security.

Beehler's priorities will include the implementation of DoD's
environmental readiness initiative in response to challenges of
encroachment, the Defense Environmental Restoration Program, unexploded
ordnance management, explosive safety, and pollution prevention.

Beehler comes to the department from Koch Industries where he served as
director of environmental and regulatory affairs and concurrently served
at the Charles G. Koch Foundation as vice president for environmental
projects.  Beehler maintains a strong background in federal
environmental policy having served in the Department of Justice as a
senior trial attorney for environmental enforcement and at the
Environmental Protection Agency as a special assistant for legal and
enforcement counsel.

Beehler is a member of the District of Columbia, State of Maryland and
Commonwealth of Virginia bar associations.  He received a bachelor's
degree from Princeton (1975) in public and international affairs and a
law degree from University of Virginia (1978).
