Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa P. Jackson, who pushed through the most sweeping curbs on air pollution in two decades, announced Thursday morning that she will resign her post.

Jackson, who will step down shortly after President Obama's State of the Union address next month, said she was "ready in my own life for new challenges, time with my family and new opportunities to make a difference." Many had expected that she would not remain for the administration's second term; Jackson herself joked about it recently.
