PA Senate confirms John Quigley as DEP Secretary

We wondered if the fact that Republican members of the Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee on Tuesday released (without recommendation) Gov. Tom Wolf's nomination of John Quigley to serve as Secretary of the Environmental Protection Agency was as a sign of some level of dissatisfaction with Mr. Quigley or with his boss, Mr. Wolf.

But the gesture didn't amount to a hill of beans today as the full Senate voted 44-4 to approve Quigley's nomination.

Quigley has served as acting DEP secretary since January. He previously headed the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) during the Rendell administration.
