The article left out the part about how in retaliation for doing their jobs the governor now requires DEP personnel to clear any and all actions against any Marcellus Shale operator with his politically appointed DEP secretary prior to issuance. This has added many extra levels of bureaucracy and is undoubtedly a way for him to crush any environmental protection efforts.
