Dear Jeanne,

Today, in a surprising turn of events, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) did not make a decision on GTN Xpress as scheduled. If approved by FERC, TC Energy’s GTN Xpress project would add more fracked gas to an aging 1,354-mile pipeline that cuts through Idaho, Washington, and Oregon.

FERC’s decision is now delayed until at least September 21. Opposition to GTN Xpress is loud and clear. Yesterday, after TC Energy’s gas pipeline in Virginia exploded and caught fire, a grassroots coalition of 26 organizations across the continent sent a letter urging FERC to deny the project or delay its decision. Community organizing can have a big impact. FERC backed off, for now.

TC Energy cannot be trusted to build or maintain safe pipelines, much less push more fracked gas through its decades-old GTN pipeline in tinder-dry eastern Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. This is a victory for communities along the pipeline who would be directly impacted by GTN Xpress. FERC now has the opportunity to listen to these communities and deny TC Energy’s project.

Many thanks to Oregon Senators Merkley & Wyden, who renewed their opposition to GTN Xpress yesterday.

Can you support our work to defeat TC Energy’s GTN Xpress?
