"These resignations are merely the latest in an ongoing exodus of top enforcement officials who are no longer comfortable with the direction of the agency's enforcement program," Jeffords said in a statement.
Jeffords' comments come on the heels of the sudden resignation of EPA's embattled enforcement chief J.P. Suarez Monday.
A number of seasoned enforcement officials have left the agency in the past year, causing speculation regarding morale and the office's direction.
