Jury still out on Stepp's claim of 'new DNR'
Whether long-term conservation of resources gets enough priority in the
Whether long-term conservation of resources gets enough priority in the
By Kurt Krueger

WHILE THE open-minded attitude of Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Secretary Cathy Stepp is a breath of fresh air, any claim that the agency is doing a better job one year into her tenure is premature at best.
In a brief end-of-year column for the media, Stepp claims “the new DNR” is getting noticed in a positive way. And that got me to thinking about what actually transpired the past 12 months.
Stepp’s first press release after her appointment hinted of politics beyond usual. She talked more of creating jobs than protecting resources. In fact, the way it read, I wondered if the release came from the Department of Commerce.
