Demand FERC Reform – Sign Petition re Pipeline Review Process PL18-1-000
On April 25, 2018, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) announced the comment period for FERC’s review of its process and policies for how it reviews and approves natural gas pipeline infrastructure.
Despite the devastating impacts of pipeline infrastructure and despite multiple requests made by the VOICES coalition (Victory Over InFRACKstructure, Clean Energy inStead) urging that the process begin with hearings in impacted communities and a minimum 90 day comment period, FERC has provided a comment period of only 55 days and no hearings. Despite this minimal opportunity to comment, it is critical FERC hear from the thousands who are being harmed by FERC approved projects.
Please help us ensure communities across America are heard and voice their concerns on the record.
Sign on to this petition, to be submitted by the July 25 deadline to docket PL18-1, to tell FERC that its pipeline review process is failing communities and the environment and needs fundamental reform.
The petition lays out the demands required of FERC to implement a Pipeline Review Process that Prioritizes the Public Interest Over the Goals of the Pipeline Industry.
