In early March, Pennsylvania Governor Wolf submitted his proposed budget. The Department of Environmental Protection issued a new iteration of proposed revisions to the Pennsylvania Oil and Gas Regulations that has since appeared in the April 4 Pennsylvania Bulletin, 45 Pa. Bull. 1615. Acting DEP Secretary John Quigley reportedly stated the Administration’s support for the Delaware River Basin Commission’s moratorium on natural gas development during a budget hearing.
Can one divine regulatory or enforcement priorities from these developments?
