Our View: FERC sidesteps LNG opponents

The decision by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission not to schedule a public meeting in Jackson County and to require commenters to appear one by one with a court reporter is a transparent attempt to avoid confronting opponents of a proposed natural gas pipeline and coastal export facility.

What’s more, the request by Jordan Cove LNG, the company behind the project, to meet privately with Jackson County commissioners at a remote location is not only an insult to local residents but would be illegal under Oregon’s public meeting law.
