Auditor General DePasquale plans special report on climate change

Local News

Auditor General DePasquale announced plans for a special report on climate change in Pennsylvania.

The federal report was released in late November and included regional impact discussions.

“In the Northeast, the report specifically cited threats to public health and safety from extreme heat and flooding; concerns about severe weather impacts on the region’s aging power, water, sewer and transportation systems; and the impact of altered ecosystems on rural communities, farming, forestry and tourism. DePasquale said climate change is too important to be treated as a partisan issue.”
