Pennsylvania Governor Corbett Announces Departure Of DEP Secretary Mike Krancer

HARRISBURG, Pa., March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Tom Corbett today announced that Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Mike Krancer will step down April 15 to return home to Montgomery County to practice law. 

"Secretary Krancer has been an invaluable member of our team and I am grateful for his service,'' Corbett said. "His impressive efforts at DEP have taken the agency back to basics, protecting the environment and making the permitting process more efficient.

"His guidance on a variety of issues related to the environment has been vital," Corbett said. "DEP has been in good hands under his leadership."

Corbett appointed Krancer to his cabinet in January 2011, where Krancer oversaw many major initiatives, including the reorganization of the agency, which created an Oil and Gas deputate and improved consistency statewide in enforcing that industry's regulations.

Krancer also oversaw the Permit Review Process and Permit Decision Guarantee, which have brought timeliness and consistency to the permitting process for all agency-regulated activities.

In April 2011, Krancer and the governor issued a call to Marcellus Shale operators to stop delivering shale gas drilling wastewater to plants that were not equipped to fully treat it, which resulted in a sea change overnight and improved the health of Pennsylvania's waterways.

Krancer also made brownfields redevelopment and abandoned mine reclamation projects around the state a priority and oversaw the implementation of the Covered Device Recycling Act.

Krancer and his agency were also instrumental in facilitating new investments and potential investments around the state, including his role in Governor Corbett's team efforts to save the three southeastern Pennsylvania refineries and attract to them new environmentally responsible investors, employers and projects.

Krancer also had the opportunity to testify as an expert before several U.S. Congressional committees on many topics.
