Consumer protection panel head leaving for law job

COLUMBIA, S.C. — The chairwoman of the Consumer Product Safety Commission said she will leave the post to join a South Carolina law firm.

Inez Tenenbaum told the Associated Press she will leave the federal job Dec. 1 for a position with the firm Nelson, Mullins, Riley & Scarborough.


Tenenbaum said she decided earlier this year that she did not want another term leading the consumer agency.

The former South Carolina education superintendent said she is ready to return home and face new challenges. She said she will work in the law firm’s offices in Columbia and Washington on issues involving product safety and education.
