Bush to nominate Scovel as USDOT's inspector general


Last week, President Bush announced he intends to nominate Calvin Scovel as inspector general for the U.S. Department of Transportation. Scovel would succeed Kenneth Mead, who resigned in February.

Currently a senior judge for the U.S. Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals, Scovel previously served as the Marines’ chief defense counsel.

The nomination will be sent to the Senate, which will conduct a confirmation hearing.
