WASHINGTON, June 12 (Reuters) - Mary Miller, the U.S. Treasury's top official for domestic finance and a key player in implementing the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reforms, will step down in early September, a Treasury spokesperson said on Thursday.

As Treasury under secretary for domestic finance, Miller was also the Obama administration's lead debt management official, operating largely behind the scenes in Washington power battles over the nation's deficit and the government's debt ceiling.
