Governor-elect Tom Wolf (D) plans to explore ways to reduce methane emissions from natural gas production. In addition to working with the private sector to promote technologies for methane detection, a spokesperson for Wolf’s transition team noted the incoming governor “will work with the Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection to explore new testing and monitoring regulations.” Wolf has previously called for stricter regulations on the state’s oil and gas industry.
