NED Opponents: testify against FERC abuses


INVESTIGATING FERC ABUSES

Hearing & Testimony, in person or from home.

Stop NED Pipeline opponents - we ask that you write a letter or submit one you had already written to FERC documenting abuses and complaints.

Will you be among those to testify and bear witness to the abuses of FERC?

If you are interested in submitting testimony, testifying or attending this People’s Hearing into abuses by FERC please fill out this google form: http://bit.ly/PeoplesHearingSurvey

Every day there is a new example of how the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is abusing its power and the law in its biased reviews of fracked gas pipelines and its disregard of the rights of people, states and regulatory agencies:

- Aggressive use of the power of eminent domain;

- Stripping states of their legal authority by leap frogging over it;

- Creating legal loopholes that put people in legal limbo, unable to challenge pipelines in court before FERC sends them in to construction;

- False public hearings that divide and conquer communities;

- Commissioners who approve projects that will benefit them personally;

- Supporting pipeline and consultant self-dealing;

- Never saying no;

- Never forcing compliance with community protection laws as projects proceed through construction;

- And on and on and on...

Communities from over 35 states and the District of Columbia abused by FERC have demanded that Congress investigate by holding congressional hearings.

While some members of the Committee on Energy and Commerce expressed support for our request through statements to the press, we need more than their support. We need action.

And we don’t have the luxury of waiting for Congress to get its act together – we need our evidence of FERC’s abuse to come forward today so we can secure needed reforms and prevent FERC’s continued Rubber Stamping on fracked gas pipeline projects cutting through our communities.

HEARING

We The People are holding our own hearing in Washington, D.C. on December 2, 2016 at the National Press Club between 11:30 and 4:30.

We will invite elected and newly elected members of Congress and the press to come hear about the abuses FERC is heaping on our communities

We need Congress and the world to hear what is happening with FERC and how our communities are being abused.

Let us know if you want to come and bear witness to the abuse and devastation you, your family and your community have suffered at the hands of FERC.
