Intervention Deadline has been set by FERC
January 6, 2016
Kinder Morgan has formally filed and FERC has accepted their application and given a deadline for filing a MOTION TO INTERVENE of January 6, 2016. You can either submit a document as an e-Filing, or use FERC’s “(doc-less) Motion to Intervene”.
As an intervenor, you gain the right to participate in a hearing, file a brief, and challenge a FERC decision (you don’t have these rights if you simply file comments). Intervening does not require you to hire a lawyer or participate further, it simply keeps the options open for you.
WHO CAN INTERVENE?
Individuals, organizations, businesses, municipalities and other entities can intervene. You will be asked to fill in reasons that you are (or your organization is) a stakeholder in this matter. It is best if you type up your comment before, and just copy and paste it into this box. The regulatory requirements specify what you should include in your motion; be sure to provide sufficient detail to show that you have or represent an “interest which may be directly affected by the outcome of the proceeding”. This can include your status as a landowners, ratepayer, etc. Also state that you are opposed to the project.
You will need to register with FERC to access this part of the site and intervene. It’s free and relatively easy.

All the files are accessible on THIS PAGE.

Some of the files are thousands of pages and/or have large map pages, so give them a few minutes to load.

Jobs, Justice, Climate: Defend New England’s Future
On December 12, people will come together from every corner of New England to call for bold climate solutions that create secure union jobs, strengthen community power and help build a more resilient future. We envision a movement that unites us all, and we will lift up the voices of New England’s organized labor, immigrant rights, racial justice, and climate justice groups as we call for jobs, justice and climate action together.
