A five-person commission at FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) will ultimately decide if the NED (Northeast Energy Direct) pipeline project gets approved. Visit this very informative page to learn how the current system is biased toward approving pipeline projects such as the NED pipeline now proposed for New England by Kinder Morgan/Tennessee Gas Pipeline.

SIGN THE PETITION! Every time someone signs the petition, the President, congressmen, and the Inspector General of Department of Energy receives a notice in their inbox.
Inform yourself via the information pages and see how FERC is affecting Americans.
Write your congressmen: ask them to listen to constituents, not just oil and gas lobbyists. Ask your federal Senators and Representatives to take a stand to fix FERC.
It is election season. Ask your candidates for federal office to take a stand. Be persistent.
Tell us who is willing to take a stand. We would like to support them.
Here is the wording of the petition:
We call on our Federal Legislators, the President, and the Inspector General of Department Of Energy to:
• Conduct an INVESTIGATION by independent researchers of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC’s) procedures.
• Based on investigation results, REVISE and UPDATE FERC’s POLICIES to reflect the critical need to decrease fossil fuel reliance and rapidly expand renewable energy technologies.
• Enact a MORATORIUM on new fossil fuel infrastructure approvals by FERC until the investigation is complete and changes are implemented.
