COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The director of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency resigns.

Director Scott Nally was appointed by Gov. John Kasich. He led the agency for three years. In a resignation letter dated Tuesday, he says the appointed position is not forever. He also stressed the importance of knowing when to step aside.

A statement from Kasich's office says Nally is leaving to "pursue other opportunities." Neither Kasich's statement nor Nally's letter elaborated on his next move. Tuesday was his last day.

Kasich's office says he will appoint Craig Butler as interim director.

Butler serves as the administration's senior policy adviser on environmental, energy, public utility and agricultural issues. He previously worked as district director of the Ohio EPA's central district and southeast district offices.
