Pennsylvania has a new Auditor General—Eugene DePasquale. Mr. DePasquale, a Democrat, ran for office on a pledge to review actions take or not taken by the DEP with respect to natural gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale Region. One day after being sworn in to office, Mr. DePasquale has launched a performance audit of the Republican run DEP. Results will be unknown for some time. Should be interesting.
Elsewhere, the new route for a 22 mile pipeline through Susquehanna County was announced. The new plan reduces the environmental footprint of the new transport line. The pipeline is expected to receive approval from required officials.
