Wyden Statement on Jan. 19 FERC Vote Affecting Jordan Cove

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden issued the following statement on today’s unanimous FERC vote on Jordan Cove:

“Today marks a big win for protecting the South Coast because it reinforces our state’s environmental laws and reflects local community input,” Wyden said. “From Day One with this project, I have insisted that Oregonians receive a fair, open, fact-based, and non-political process while FERC determines whether LNG projects are necessary and in the public’s best interest -- including strict adherence to the Clean Water Act. Today’s unanimous decision by FERC is good news and the logical conclusion of that process.”
