Governor Corbett Apparently Restores DEP Inspectors' Authority

In a letter last week from Governor Corbett responding to more than 40 environmental groups which had expressed opposition to the 3 month pilot project during which inspectors were not to issue notices of violation without prior approval, Governor Corbett has apparently acted to make it clear that DEP inspectors do not have to get clearance from the Secretary office's in Harrisburg to issue a notice of violation.

Don Hopey is writing a story for the Pittsburgh Post Gazette right now reporting the above.

I hope this is accurate and commend the restoration of the DEP inspectors authority to make the initial decision on the spot without preclearance.
