On June 7, Call Senate on FERC Vacancies to Stop Mega-Pipelines

commentOVEC urges you to heed this message from the FERC Vacancies Coalition:

If we can stop the Senate from restoring a quorum at FERC we can prevent approval of any more fracked gas pipelines. (FERC is the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. It is involved in regulating interstate fracked gas pipelines.)

On June 7, call your Senators, as well as Senate leaders Schumer and Cantwell, and urge them to vote “NO” on Trump’s nominees for FERC.

Simply Say:

I am calling to urge Senator ___________ to vote against President Trump’s two nominees, Neil Chatterjee and Robert Powelson, to be commissioners of FERC. Their records make clear that they will do little or nothing to stop FERC’s rubber-stamping approval of fracked gas pipelines proposed by the fracked gas industry. Senator _______________ needs to stand up for our climate, against eminent domain abuse, and for clean air and water by voting “no” to these FERC nominees.
