Philly Gang of Five Win Delay of PA DEP Secretary Reconfirmation

Pennsylvania State Sen. Gene Yaw (Republican from Lycoming County), who serves as Majority Chair of the Senate Environmental Committee, has caved to pressure from five Philadelphia-area Senators (four Democrats, one RINO), to delay a hearing on reconfirming Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP) Secretary Patrick McDonnell. The Gang of Five are trying to bully McDonnell into blocking the Mariner East 2 Pipeline project by threatening him with unending investigations, and by threatening his very job. Nice folks.

UPDATE: Sen. Yaw did not cave to pressure from the Gang of Five. Something else has delayed McDonnell’s reconfirmation. See our update below.
