Compliance and fiscal crises at dog law: Musings on fiery meeting

Not a day goes by without one press release or more hitting my email box from the Corbett administration announcing a new effort to crack down on scofflaws big and small. On Thursday it was the regular list of insurance fraudsters plus another email about the Corbett administration joining a national effort to stop cyber criminals. A few weeks ago the Office of Inspector General, in its periodic round up of public welfare crooks, announced that a Pennsylvania man who took $500 in food stamps would be spending the next 18 months in prison. So, it came as a surprise to me and many others that the Corbett administration would give dog breeders operating kennels that do not meet the law's mandatory requirements a pass.
