NC General Assembly Members Ask FERC to Halt ACP

After a lobby day last week, 22 members of the North Carolina General Assembly signed an April 12, 2019 letter to FERC urging “the Commission to issue a stop work order, and suspend the Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity in order to re-assess the need for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.”

Sierra Club, NC Pipeline Watch, NC Conservation Network, other partners, and congregants from the NC Council of Churches met at the North Carolina General Assembly to advocate for the future world they want to live in. Community lobbyists also passed out the NC Council of Church’s governing board’s statement opposing fracked gas pipelines; the Council represents more than 1.5 million congregants across the state.
