A federal agency just gave one of several approvals to the Jordan Cove gas export proposal in Coos Bay. 

Several more approvals are still required before any gas is compressed or shipped, but environmental groups like Rogue Riverkeeper are not waiting. 

They've already asked Oregon's governor to help stop the project, which includes proposed pipelines that would cross the Rogue and other rivers.
