Scoop: Clean Coal Association Prez Stepping Down

After 17 years at the helm The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, Steve Miller announced today that he is retiring as president later this year. Miller has been the group's only CEO, growing it from a regional lobbying shop into a multi-million dollar federal lobbying, policy and communications and marketing behemoth. 

Miller, who lives in Louisville, Kentucky, told board members in a letter today that he wanted to spend more time with his sons, ages 11 and 16. (Read the full letter after the jump.)

"Recognizing a compelling desire to be home more often has led me to decide that I will retire from ACCCE later this year, with my departure date to be established after I fully consult with the search team," Miller wrote. 

The move opens a prime Washington trade association job. In 2010, Miller made $1.65 million, according to the latest IRS records available and, that same year, the association spent $45 million. The trade group spent $3.4 million on lobbying alone last year and almost $10 million in 2008 at the height of the climate change debate, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
