This article states the DEP is understaffed...

~ And, that it's hard keeping well trained people in all the right places...

Tell me again Triton, how much better qualified the DEP is over the EPA???

One more thing! Was the EPA more acceptable to you under Bush or because Obama is president???

The EPA has proven to be a highly political organization that is folded and spindled by whomever is the party in power. When Bush was in power, greenies complained that it was bought and paid for by oil people, however when Obama took office he issued more offshore oil drilling permits than all other Presidents combined. The current EPA toads seem themselves as a power unto themselves. The WV Dept of Environmental Protection seems to be more effective. I could not help but wonder at the gall of Obamaa making his only trip ever to WV to go to Big Branch to lament the dangers of coal mining when it was his mine regulators who dropped the ball on safety. The DEP is staffed with some highly qualified inspectors (with degrees) who are pretty ardent toward the environment. They have investigated the gas industry to death. Obama's version of the EPA needs to be thrown into the bag with the NSA and IRS and thrown off a bridge. We need protecetion not ideology.

Beware of Morrisey's thinking! "West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey said the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is often out of bounds."

At no place in this article, did Morrisey refer to safety of the workers and the population...

The EPA, was created to protect our environment!

Is Morrisey saying the states can protect the environment, workers and population better than the EPA???
