Washington, DC – Today, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) granted the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) their request to extend their Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity for four more years.
In response, Russell Chisholm of the Protect Our Water, Heritage, Rights (POWHR) Coalition said:
“The fact that FERC granted MVP the certificate for the full four years emphasizes the brutal length and uncertainty of the project. This project should never be built and this decision subjects our communities to prolonged harm. That’s why tens of thousands of people submitted comments to stop FERC from granting this extension. Now we’re taking our growing movement to DC to demand decisionmakers stop MVP and all pro-fossil fuel legislation.”
