Environment, meet politics

Looks like decisions over how to spend the new monies authorized by the recent Pennsylvania voter approval of Growing Greener II are already enmeshed in partisan political battles, as GOP legislators dread the sight of a smiling Ed Rendell dispensing checks, and suggest county-based grants instead. There are so many potential interest groups involved and so many different ways to view "equitable" distribution that I couldn't pick a single representative pull-quote. Looks unlikely to be settled by the end of June, anyway, when Harrisburg goes on recess, so I'm sure we'll be hearing much more about this in the fall.
