Press release from the issuing company

November 2007 - WASHINGTON- Public Printer Robert C. Tapella is pleased that the U.S. Government Printing Office's (GPO) General Counsel Gregory A. Brower has been nominated by President George W. Bush to be the U.S. Attorney for the District of Nevada.   The U.S. Attorney's Office in the state is responsible for representing the federal government in virtually all of the litigation involving the United States in Nevada and its 17 counties.
"GPO has benefited from Greg's legal expertise, management skills and leadership ability first as Inspector General and currently as General Counsel as the agency has transformed itself into a 21st century digital operation and expanded its reach into new markets," said Public Printer Robert C. Tapella.  "Greg's integrity and experience in the public sector will be a great asset to the Department of Justice and the State of Nevada."
Brower assumed the position of General Counsel to GPO in October 2006. Prior to serving as General Counsel, Brower served as the agency's Inspector General, a position he held since October 2004. He previously served at the U.S. Department of Justice where he was Legislative Counsel in the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys, managing Congressional affairs for the 93 U.S. Attorneys Offices around the country. He also served as the office's liaison to other DOJ components, including the FBI, the Criminal Division, the Office of Legal Policy, and the Office of Legislative Affairs, working closely with those and other units on a wide range of criminal and civil law policy issues.
"I am deeply honored to be nominated by the President. I look forward to the confirmation process and, if confirmed, to the opportunity to return to both the Department of Justice and my home state of Nevada," said GPO General Counsel Gregory A. Brower. "I enjoyed every day of my tenure at GPO and will miss working with some of the most talented and dedicated public servants I have encountered in government."
