Published by

NRDC and 10 other groups sent a letter to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) that urges FERC to reform its natural gas pipeline review process with a "21st Century approach" that ensures "that above all else – the public interest is protected, which is consistent with FERC’s mandate under the Natural Gas Act." The letter, suggesting six steps to follow in modernising the pipeline certification process, was sent on the eve of FERC's open meeting today to discuss reviewing its 1999 policy for evaluating the need for natural gas pipelines.

The groups are: NRDC, Sierra Club, Earthjustice, GreenFaith, Southern Environmental Law Center, Conservation Law Foundation, Public Citizen, Catskill Mountainkeeper, New Jersey Conservation Foundation, Riverkeeper, and Acadia Center.

The letter can be found here.
