Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett announced today that Pennsylvania DEP Secretary Michael Krancer will resign from the DEP effective April 15. Mr. Krancer will return to private law practice at his former law firm, Blank Rome, LLP. No successor has been named, but the deputy chief of staff for the governor, E. Christopher Abruzzo, will serve as acting secretary after Mr. Krancer’s departure. In a press release from the DEP, Governor Corbett stated, “Secretary Krancer has been an invaluable member of our team and I am grateful for his service. His impressive efforts at DEP have taken the agency back to basics, protecting the environment and making the permitting process more efficient.”
