Money over environment

In the news story “DEP wants to boost fees on major polluters” (Feb. 5 and, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection stated that due to major polluters either cleaning up their systems or old power plants shutting down, there was not enough fine money coming in to cover DEP operating costs.

My question: Are we to believe that the DEP will now go after everything and anything to make up the deficit?

My conclusion: It has never been about clean air, water, etc. It is strictly about money!
