Maryland prosecuted 9 environmental crimes in last fiscal year, down from previous years

State environment officials employed 152 inspectors in the fiscal year that ended last June, the fewest since fiscal year 2008, according to a department report. State officials say they can still pursue environmental inspections, but lawmakers are concerned, and placed money in the budget for four more positions. (Ulysses Muñoz / Baltimore Sun)
