FERC Changes Date of Meeting to TRY to Avoid Protestors
'Dishonest and deceitful,' protestors say: Lee Stewart of BXE slammed FERC's change-of-date, saying that FERC's statement about protecting staff is "dishonest and deceitful, and demonstrates unambiguously that they are more interested in the needs and profits of industry than in the needs of the American people,' he said in a statement.

He did not say whether the protest events would be rescheduled, but promised that protestors would continue to show up at FERC's public meetings. More
