Mr. Rudolph "Rudy" Bradley, Commissioner, Florida Public Service Commission has been named to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Local Government Advisory Committee. The Committee provides EPA Administrator Michael Leavitt with advice and recommendations to help build partnerships with local governments to better protect the nation's environment. Commissioner Bradley will be one of 31 representatives from different regions of the country who will meet on a regular basis with EPA.

Commissioner Bradley serves on the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) on Consumer Affairs, Water, and International Relations. Commissioner Bradley also served as the Chairman of the Business Development and International Trade Committee and Chairman of the Economic Development Council. He served as an educator in Pinellas County for several years and developed several private enterprises involving real estate and livestock.

A substantial part of EPA's mission involves developing and enforcing Federal regulations to protect and improve the environment. Local governments are essential partners in this mission. Serving as both regulators and regulated entities, they implement major environmental regulations and provide community services such as drinking water treatment, waste water treatment and solid waste management. Local governments also play a key role in addressing environmental issues such as clean air, clean water, and sustainable development.

The Local Government Advisory Committee was formed in 1993. The group has provided recommendations to the Agency on a broad range of topics including communications, flexibility, strategic planning, regulatory innovation and reform, environmental protection tools, pollution prevention, new technologies, and roles of various levels of government.
