The senior Democrat on the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Interior and the Environment has announced his intention to retire at the end of the year. Representative Jim Moran (D-VA) will not seek reelection after serving 12 terms in Congress.
During his tenure, Moran has championed environmental conservation, science, and federal workers.
In 2010, the USGS Coalition recognized Moran with the USGS Coalition Leadership Award for his continuing support of the scientific mission of the U.S. Geological Survey.
To date, two dozen lawmakers have announced their intention to retire at the end of the 113th Congress.
