Dear Jeanne,

Thank you to all of those who submitted comments to the Washington Public Utilities Commission (WUTC) in opposition to GTN’s proposed pipeline expansion in the Northwest (GTN XPress). The WUTC received about 190 comments! (If you’ve forgotten the specifics of this proposal, you can learn more in this Sightline article and in this Op-ed.)

Unfortunately, the WUTC is not the only decision maker. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), an agency notoriously favorable to the fossil fuel industry, has already approved GTN’s Environmental Impact Statement, and their final decision could take place as soon as February 16th.  However, statements of opposition from Governor Inslee and Senators Murray and Cantwell could make a difference.

Please call our two Senators, as well as Governor Inslee, asking them to issue public statements in opposition to GTN’s proposal. Click here for a suggested call script.
Governor Jay Insee:   360-902-4111
Senator Maria Cantwell Seattle number:   206 220 6400
DC number:  202 224 3441
Senator Patty Murray Seattle number:  206 553 5545
DC number:  202-224-2621

Want to do more? Join the February 13th People’s Hearing. If you’d like FERC to hear your views about this project, please join Senator Jeff Merkley and Rogue Climate on February 13th at 5:00 p.m. via Zoom, for a People’s Hearing. You can sign up here to speak at the hearing and/or submit a comment to FERC.

Thanks for your continued work in fighting this horrific fossil fuel proposal!
