2 agency heads already leaving Pence administration

Gov. Mike Pence is losing two agency heads only a few months into his new administration.

The Journal Gazette reports that Indiana Department of Natural Resources chief Rob Carter has asked the Indiana Ethics Commission for a formal opinion on whether he can accept a position at Ivy Tech Community College.

Robert Wynkoop left his post as Indiana Department of Administration commissioner last month. He's asking the commission to approve his move to a Purdue University job that he started several weeks ago.

The Ethics Commission will hear the requests Thursday.

Pence had tapped both men in December to remain in positions they began under former Gov. Mitch Daniels. Daniels is now president of Purdue University.
