OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Gov. Chris Gregoire says Judy Schurke is resigning as director of the Washington state Department of Labor & Industries, effective Dec. 31.
The governor praised Schurke on Wednesday for her efforts to streamline business practices at the agency and champion "lean management."
Gregoire also said she was pleased to have had Schurke at her side during negotiations on what the governor called "the most significant reforms to the workers' compensation system in its 100-year history."
An interim replacement will be named.
