Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Resigns

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf's environmental protection secretary has resigned after Wolf's office said it was looking into an email the official sent to advocacy groups from a private email address.

Wolf confirmed John Quigley's resignation in a brief interview Friday, but didn't explain the reasons behind it. He says Quigley did a fine job.

The resignation came hours after the governor's office disclosed its inquiry into the email.

A state lawmaker, Democratic Sen. John Yudichak, had said earlier that says "serious concerns" had been raised about Quigley's conduct.
