I joined Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale and some of my House colleagues at a recent Capitol news conference at which the auditor general released the findings of audits on the Susquehanna and Delaware River Basin Commissions. A few years ago, I raised questions about these interstate compacts, which are largely unchecked and abusing their regulatory authority. The audits show the commissions, which receive taxpayer funding, inappropriately used taxpayer money for lavish meals and alcohol, and for gift cards to reward employees. I will be taking action to increase transparency, provide legislative oversight and other measures to make the commissions more accountable to taxpayers.
