Pennsylvania’s Governor-Elect Nominates Insiders for Top Environmental Posts

These men will be the ones who head the DEP, creating and molding new industry regulations, running inspections and levying fines, and overseeing everything from how waste/produced water is handled to how drilling permits are sold. We’ll have to wait and see how effective and aggressive they will be since their boss Corbett accepted over $800,000 in contributions from the natural gas industry over the last few years.
