DePasquale announces climate change report, release planned by budget deadline

Auditor General Eugene DePasquale announced he is planning his own report on climate change in Pennsylvania Monday.

The report, which he said would be out by the budget deadline of June 30, will focus on state government responses to climate change and how the state can prepare for its adverse effects, from increased strain on emergency services to degrading infrastructure.

“It will not be the same as national or international action, but it is up to states to do what they can,” DePasquale said.
