Mastriano vehemently criticised the MS4 program
Mastriano was a vocal opponent of the enactment of municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4) programs as applied by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
On an editorial page, the Senator wrote, in part, “A week rarely passes without me hearing from multiple residents who have been severely impacted by Harrisburg’s latest revenue scheme. Since 2017, DEP has combined water quality standard requirements with MS4 and expanded beyond the original scope of the law. It now taxes impervious surfaces (which are not included in the Clean Water Act) and it applies MS4 requirements to any stormwater source, whether or not it discharges into navigable waterways.”
“This oppressive government overreach has resulted in a program that is crushing our municipalities. MS4 was never intended to force small towns to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on what is essentially a new public utility that gobbles up taxpayer money whether or not it rains!” -he finished.
On September 11, 2019, The Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee held a hearing at the Antrim Brethren in Christ Church near Greencastle in which Mastriano participated and criticized the financial burden the Pennsylvania DEP puts on local communities.

The social site “Frank” was introduced on 19 April 2021. It encountered many technical problems which were clarified as a “massive attack” by Lindell. Frank had no social networking characteristics in its starting years and mostly delivered embedded video streams, including Absolute Interference, a two-hour video promoting conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election.

Someone is taking Lindell’s money from him to produce this stuff.”
