Got a nice surprise ride to the State House today from my husband, who happened to be in town. I even got him to come sit with me! Mary P. of Weymouth also join me. She’s a champion Baker-sitter.
Today’s note was about the NJ DEP, and how they rejected a totally incomplete application from PennEast, even though FERC “reviewed” the application and was just fine with it. FERC DOESN’T WORK.
Regarding the Politico story headline: I find it a bit odd that getting rejected for not doing all of the required work is called a “blow”. It should be EXPECTED that your application would be rejected based on incompleteness. That’s how things work for the rest of us.
A NJ Senator put it quite succinctly: “PennEast can’t build this pipeline unless we [the State] let them”.
Enbridge cannot build the compressor nor the pipeline unless the state lets them. FERC is in a disarray right now, and it feels like states can take up the slack and do the right thing for their residents.
Say it with me again:
Enbridge cannot build the compressor nor the pipeline unless the state lets them
