Congress: Protect Our Communities; Reject the Natural Gas Pipeline Permitting Reform ActJust when you thought another give away to the gas drillers couldn’t be possible, pro-drilling cronies in the U.S. Congress find a way – this time truncating the level of environmental review and resulting protections given to interstate pipelines, and providing automatic approvals when short time limits are not met. Pipelines are an indelible cut across the landscape -- through the power of eminent domain for private properties and political persuasion for public lands, they secure the right to cut our forests, pollute our water, contaminate our air, exacerbate climate change, damage jobs, and make our communities less safe. They need to be subject to the same laws as everyone else.1,234 of 2,000 SignaturesCreated by Maya van Rossum
