Senate GOP Outlines Accomplishments, No Positive Environmental Bills Listed For 2016

Once again topping the list of accomplishments for Senate Republicans is stopping the enactment of “massive, broad-based tax increases” by Gov. Wolf for the second year in a row.  Also on the list were--
-- Pension Reform passing three pension reforming bills, including Senate Bill 1 vetoed by the Governor;
-- Liquor Reform; and
-- Legalizing Medical Marijuana.
Only two environment-related laws made it on the list for this year: Act 52 of 2016 killing DEP’s conventional oil and gas regulations update and Act 57 of 2016 putting in place more roadblocks to adopting a Pennsylvania plan to comply with the EPA Clean Power Climate Plan.
There was only one environmental law on the list for 2015: Act 47 of 2015 authorizing the reuse of treated mine water in drilling operations.
