The LNG Fight Moves To State Regulators


The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission--FERC--removed a major obstacle to the building of the Jordan Cove liquified natural gas (LNG) export terminal and pipeline recently. 

But the federal approval is not the final word. 

State authorities in Oregon still have to weigh in on the LNG plan, which includes a long pipeline running from the Klamath Basin to the Oregon coast. 

The Rogue Riverkeeperprogram takes a particular interest in the LNG project. 

Campaign workers join us in studio with their take on FERC's decision and the state process.
