N.H. Congressional Delegation Calls For 'Transparency' On Pipeline Project

Jan 16, 2015

Members of the state’s Congressional delegation are calling for greater transparency before a decision is made about the route of a proposed natural gas pipeline expansion in southern New Hampshire.

U.S. Representatives Frank Guinta and Anne Kuster along with U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen and Kelly Ayotte sent a letter to Kinder Morgan and Federal Regulatory Commission on Thursday.

In the letter, they urge Kinder Morgen and regulators to give Granite Staters time to express any concerns about the project.

Texas-based Kinder Morgen has proposed the Northeast Energy Direct pipeline in response to spiking natural gas prices in recent winters.
