- Stop Fracked Gas Pipelines from Being Approved by FERC: An online comment form provided by Delaware Riverkeeper and Stop the Pipelines that takes advantage of the current lack of a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) quorum by urging representatives to oppose the appointment of any new FERC commissioners until Congress holds hearings investigating the many problems with FERC and institutes reforms for the agency. Just fill in your contact information to immediately send a letter to your representative using Delaware Riverkeeper’s pre-written letter.
