ADEQ to Get Money for More Inspectors

Posted By on Thu, Dec 18, 2008 at 4:03 PM

Andrew DeMillo of AP has this story.  Apparently the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality will receive $3.5 million to hire new inspectors to keep an eye on the Fayetteville Shale gas drilling operations and after-effects.  That number was originally somewhere around $300,000 to hire four new inspectors.  There's no word yet on how many inspectors the agency will now be able to afford.

  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
