The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the leading bad actor in what American Enterprise Institute (AEI) Scholar, Benjamin Zycher, calls the, “metastasis of the executive branch.”
Zycher, and other policy experts, say that the agency is accelerating a power grab through an aggressive regulatory agenda with dubious or scant benefits to the environment. Thousands of jobs will be jettisoned as businesses, especially manufacturers, try to cope with billions more in compliance costs.

Governor Corbett’s energy plan stems from a fundamental belief and trust in the job creation benefits of a free market system. It also recognizes that our energy industry, by safely drilling in the Marcellus Shale, is leading the way in creating jobs..
Figures from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry:
Nearly 242,000 new hires in Pa. are supported by industries associated with shale development.
Governor Tom Corbett’s energy plan is once again making Pennsylvania an attractive place to do business. His “Energy=Jobs” plan combines the use of our vast energy resources with a favorable political climate that reinforces a surging trend of attracting businesses from all over the world.
The power behind the plan lies in proper government restraint. Governor Corbett believes that the market, given appropriate environmental safeguards, best decides in what proportion our energy resources are developed and used. He fittingly calls it his "all of the above and below" energy plan.

The United States has failed our Canadian partners by stalling the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, which would transport synthetic crude oil from the oil sands in Alberta to refiners in the southern United States.
Despite the strong support of the Canadian government, U.S. business leaders, and many labor groups, the Obama Administration has done everything possible to indefinitely delay the construction plan; all while the project has been carefully prodded, examined, and dissected, and been found to be environmentally sound.

Mike Krancer promised that as Governor Corbett’s Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) he would support only those environmental policies based on “sound science.” His approach to environmental oversight at times put the Department at odds with the ever-overreaching federal EPA and some radical environmental groups, but he never backed down; and rightfully so.
