Wouldn't expect anything less from Corbett's goosestepping zombies. Conservation & resource management isn't a concept they can grasp. To them it's all about recreation as consumption.

All I can say is Corbett has to go. He surely doesn't have the better interest of the enviornment in mind. He's an oil/gas guy, it's that simple. Can't stand him!

It makes sense to me. They are taking TU at face value. I mean how many legislators are interested in trout fishing? They are ignoring the environmental benefits effected by TU and similar groups.

They need to study Teddy Roosevelt.

As a Republican, I do not think we have anyone who can unseat potential Two-term Tom. But, Democrats, surely you can come up with someone who can defeat this pawn of the Marcellus drilling corps.

Contact your state reps. Tell them how you feel. They work for you. You'd be surprised what a few phone calls and emails can do. Corbett isn't any worse than Rendell was. The legislature is who you want to lean on.

This has been discussed at some length here. Basically it starts at Post #36. I've made my views known in this previous thread.

I took the time to send our Gov Corbett and email concerning his horrid environmental record. This is one republican who will be voting democrat this fall. The election cannot happen soon enough.

It's not just Corbett, it's the entire Republican party, it thinks that resources are there for their friends to consume, the environment be damned.
I don't like 'corbett the corrupt' and will vote for a Democrat. But I also think the legislature needs to be vote out. And they need term limitations.

I would surmise that's exactly what the pro-stocking crowd has been doing. If your constituents are calling you complaining that the PF&BC is placing streams on the Class A list and no longer stocking them and they aren't going to buy a license as a result do you only have an issue with this if you're a Republican?

I watched some of the meeting on PCN. I was shocked at how pro-stocking the legislators that I saw question Arway were but again, if they believe that the people who put them in office want this, what are they going to do? Tell them to pound sand?

it's one thing to listen to your constituents, it's another to ignore sound scientific facts and make poor environmental decisions. While on one hand the reps are in place to do as the people say, they are also there to safeguard our resources(read the state constitution!) for future generations.
It's all about me me me, the hell with the consequences.

bottom line, most people are selfish pigs, and most of the gov is elected from this group.

seems we have learned NOTHING from the past mistakes.

I think it's Tom Wolf saying he will push for a severance tax on the gas industry.
It's a start.
now we need to see if he knows what a trout is.
