By now you've probably seen Don Hopey's remarkable story on new Department of Environmental Protection rules, issued secretly last week, that all Marcellus Shale inspection and enforcement actions must be pre-approved by top Corbett admin political appointees at the department. (See the story for copies of DEP memos.)
Former P-G'r Katie Park put together a sortable graphic that also launched today (click above) on the members of Corbett's shale commission. As we've noted before, despite the constant calls for a Marcellus fee or tax to help fill the state's budget decifit, the commission (which the guv announced in his budget address) isn't tasked with releasing any findings until a few days after the June 30 state budget deadline.
UPDATE: Jim Ferlo's now calling for am Inspector General review of the new regulatory rules.
