Congress: Protect Our Communities; Reject the Natural Gas Pipeline Permitting Reform Act

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.

We urge you to reject passage of the Natural Gas Pipeline Permitting Reform Act.

The purpose of these pipelines is not to benefit the public; they advance the economic interest of private parties given ownership or use of the property taken. Invoke Section 3(d) in Executive Order 13406 since these pipelines are a harmful use of land that co...
