After four years in office, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson said on Thursday that she will step down after President Obama's State of the Union address in January, inviting speculation about who will be named as her successor. Jackson's four-year tenure at the agency was busy and productive, but it also was controversial.

This active administrative role made her a target for lawmakers and pundits who see EPA regulations as symptomatic of the Obama administration’s government overreach, but her leadership did score points within the environmental community, which on Thursday lamented her imminent departure.
