CQ Roll Call’s New Approps Hire

Anne Hoy, Executive Editor of CQ News and CQ Roll Call, announced today that Tamar Hallerman will join the news staff at CQ Roll Call.

The announcement says Hallerman “brings experience providing in-depth coverage of energy and environmental policy sharply focused on climate change and the coal industry.”

She has tracked relevant appropriations subcommittees and wrote about the spending battles involving the Environmental Protection Agency, the Energy Department and the administration. She broke stories about cost overruns at the Energy Department’s “clean coal” project.

Once at CQ Roll Call… Hallerman will cover appropriations as part of Paul Page’s economic and finance team and work closely with CQ’s veteran approps reporter, Kerry Young. The shuffled deck at CQ will send Young to CQ HealthBeat where she’ll be able to focus on a policy area she’s passionate about. Hallerman got her start as an intern for National Public Radio and Capital News Connection and also covered the Colorado congressional delegation as the one-person Washington bureau for the Durango Herald.
