Environmental Prosecutions Continue to Decrease

Syracuse Trac just reported the number of environmental criminal prosecutions is continuing to drop.  (see here).  Based upon first quarter statistics, the "annual total [projected] prosecutions will be 220 for this fiscal year."  This would be down from 338 for FY 2017 and 393 for FY 2016. In 2007 the number was above 900 prosecutions for the year.

(esp) (w/ disclosure that she is a B.S. graduate of Syracuse U.- home of the Trac Reports).
