HARRISBURG – State Senator Gene Yaw (R-23), Chairman of the Pennsylvania Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee, today released the following statement announcing his support for the nomination of E. Christopher Abruzzo to serve as Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
“Today, I was pleased to support the nomination of Chris Abruzzo as Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection,” Yaw said. “Since I have worked with, and known Chris, he has gained a reputation and respect as a problem solver. During his tenure as Acting Secretary at DEP he has taken it upon himself to implement several innovative procedures and programs. It is obvious that he understands the complexities facing our environment, and has already begun to engage and address them. He is a strong, independent leader who is more than qualified to serve as our next DEP Secretary. I believe that this was evidenced today by the amount of bipartisan support that he received.”
