Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell Tuesday picked C. Daniel Hassell to serve as acting secretary of the Department of Revenue, the same day that Stephen Stetler stepped down from the post amid corruption charges.

Hassell's nomination requires Senate confirmation. He held various tax policy posts for over three decades in the department, having last served as deputy secretary for tax policy for revenue, and holds a master's in public management and policy from Carnegie-Mellon University.
