The White House is getting a new spokesman for energy and climate issues.
Frank Benenati, formerly of the Office of Management and Budget's press office, will be the new White House press secretary on energy issues.
Benenati comes in as the administration is in full-blown engagement mode on President Obama's climate change agenda.
Obama's climate policies have become a central focus of administration's outreach this year, specifically following the release of the president's carbon pollution regulations on existing power plants.
