Corbett Back-Doors DRBC

Hey, if they won't allow fracking, he'll take away their money. That seems to be our Governor's latest ploy to get the DRBC to loosen up and approve a wholesale fracking free-for-all in the Delaware River basin.
From the article:

DRBC Deputy Executive Director Bob Tudor said he was surprised by the cuts and feels the agency has been singled out. Corbett’s budget proposal keeps funding flat for two other watershed commissions in the Chesapeake Bay and the Susquehanna River basin.

“Sometimes if there aren’t votes on key policy issues the way the governors can make their positions known is through the budget process,” Tudor said.

Well, we all know Tom Corbett's response to anyone who opposes his position on fracking, or pretty much anything else he does.

Bend over, baby.
