PEC Applauds DEP Permitting Modernization Effort

The Pennsylvania Environmental Council commends Governor Wolf and the Department of Environmental Protection for their efforts to improve Department performance with respect to environmental protection and responsiveness to the regulated community. Today’s announcement that the Governor will seek to add Department staff to further the Department’s mission is most welcome, given the ever-increasing demands placed on the agency.

We look forward to working with the administration on additional policy and permitting reform that will further ensure protection of our state’s environmental resources and quality of life, while also supporting the needs of communities, individuals, and businesses throughout the Commonwealth.
