Help move Senate Bill 469 out of Committee Senate Bill 469 – An Act relative to the positioning of compressor stations. State Senator O’Connor, with the support of 11 other representatives and senators, submitted a bill that would prevent the construction of compressor stations within a half mile of vulnerable facilities such as schools, churches, and daycare operations. The Joint Committee on Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture held a public hearing on Tuesday, May 16 to review this bill. If this bill passes, it could be the key to the safety and security of thousands of residents in the Commonwealth. Please contact the 2 chairs and committee members of the committee, and ask for their support. For brief talking points, click here. Contact info for committee members available here.
