Auditor General DePasquale To Hold May 13 Climate Hearing At Widener University, Harrisburg

Auditor General DePasquale will hold another in his series of hearings on climate change May 13 at Widener University Commonwealth Law School, Administration Building Room A-170, 3800 Vartan Way in Harrisburg from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
DePasquale announced last December he is doing a special report on climate change that will focus on state government’s response and steps that can better prepare the state for the future, noting that the problem will impact communities of all sizes.
“The climate crisis will disrupt our economy and create unforeseen burdens on taxpayers,” DePasquale said. “Considering how little serious work is being done about it in Washington, it’s time for states to make certain they’re doing all they can to be prepared.”
He added, “Beyond the safety risks posed by severe weather and infrastructure damage, a changing climate will impact health, transportation, agriculture, forestry, tourism – a whole host of issues.”
