FERC, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which rejected 2 gas pipelines out of 400 since 1999, to review approval policy... New report from Steve Horn of DeSmog Blog:
“If FERC were an agency which truly put the public interest first, the announced plan to review their process for approving pipelines would be a welcome development,” the group said in a press statement. “But facts don’t lie: over the past 30 years FERC has granted permits for all but two proposed interstate gas pipelines. It is a rubber stamp agency, and it has been this through both Democratic and Republican administrations.”
