COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The chairwoman of the Consumer Product Safety Commission says she will leave the post to join a South Carolina law firm later this year.

Inez Tenenbaum told The Associated Press on Thursday that she will leave the Washington position Dec. 1 for a job with the firm Nelson, Mullins, Riley & Scarborough.

Tenenbaum says she decided earlier this year that she didn't want another term leading the consumer protection agency. The former South Carolina education superintendent says she's ready to return home and face new challenges.

She says she will work in the law firm's offices in both Columbia and Washington on issues involving product safety and education.

She says that during her four-plus years in Washington, the commission approved 50 new rules that help protect children.
