BONNER NOMINATED AS CUSTOMS COMMISSIONER
The Bush Administration announced that has nominated Robert C. Bonner to be the next commissioner of the U.S. Customs Service.
The nomination must be approved by the Senate. Charles W. Winwood, deputy commissioner at Customs, has been filling in as acting commissioner since Raymond W. Kelly stepped down as head of the agency last year.
Bonner is currently a partner with Los Angeles law firm Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher. He formerly served as U.S. attorney for the Central District of California during the Reagan Administration and as judge of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of Califonia under former President Bush.
From 1990 to 1993, Bonner served as administrator for the Drug Enforcement Administration
