The head of offshore drilling at an Interior Department agency criticized
after the Gulf Coast oil spill is retiring a month earlier than planned,
an administration official told CNN on Monday.
"This was Chris Oynes' decision to retire after almost 35 years of public
service," the official said. "Shortly after the Deepwater Horizon explosion,
he approached leadership at MMS and announced he would be retiring on
June 30, and today [Monday,] he told his colleagues that he would be
accelerating his retirement."
