Yesterday in the Pennsylvania General Assembly:
Pollution penalties. The Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee unanimously approved legislation to increase penalties for people who pollute the state’s waterways. The bill would make intentional violations of Pennsylvania’s Clean Streams Law a felony and boost penalties to a maximum of seven years in prison and a $50,000 fine.
Thanks to Jane Dauffenbach for the submission.
