Challenge FERC's decision to approve the GTN Xpress Pipeline Expansion

Federal Energy Regulatory Commission

On October 19th, the Federal Energy Regulator Commission (FERC) approved TC Energy's bid to expand the 62 year old GTN pipeline that runs through Washington, Idaho, and right through our communities in Central Oregon. This controversial and planet-destroying gas expansion will result in $13 billion dollars in cost of carbon, ultimately which all of us will pay for. Click here for more background information on the pipeline.

A long list of West Coast elected officials and tribal leaders have voiced their concerns for this project, yet FERC appeased the fossil fuel company by approving it anyways. The list of opposition includes:

  • Oregon Governor Tina Kotek
  • Washington Governor Jay Inslee
  • The Attorneys General of Washington, Oregon, and California
  • Oregon Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley
  • California Senators Alex Padilla and the late Dianne Feinstein
  • Washington Senators Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray
  • Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission
  • 22 Organizations and nonprofits throughout the West  

We are challenging FERC's decision to approve the GTN Xpress. Please sign the petition to show support for our appeal.

Dear FERC Commissioners,

I urge you to reconsider your decision to approve the GTN Xpress pipeline expansion project. This gas infrastructure project goes directly against the state climate laws of Oregon and Washington. Elected officials in all of the West Coast states and tribal governments have urged you not to approve this dangerous and unnecessary pipeline. We feel that your analysis of this project and decision to approve it, did not properly consider the implications set forth by our West coast leaders. Please reevaluate your decision to protect our health, safety and future.
