A. Todd Johnston has joined the Portland Cement Association Washington office as vice president for Government Affairs, arriving with a strong record of experience and accomplishments in state government and industry, and on Capitol Hill. Most recently, he served as staff director for the Subcommittees on Environment and Energy under the U.S. House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, leading a team whose primary focus was on the technical, scientific and legal underpinnings of major Environmental Protection Agency-proposed regulatory initiatives: greenhouse gas standards for power plants; revisions to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for ozone; and, changes to the scope of regulation falling under the Clean Water Act.
