Interstate commissions

Multistate agencies are strange creatures. They often serve at the pleasure of the governors of the states involved, and the federal government through agencies such as the Department of the Interior. Their effectiveness is also often tied to federal and state purse strings.

So, what happens when one source of revenue dries up? The Delaware River Basin Commission is running out of money. What will that mean? A public meeting tonight may determine that.
