Three of the sixteen state legislative leaders who filed an April 4 letter with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission have investments in companies associated with the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP).  They are:

  • Thomas Norment, Majority Leaders, VA Senate – $50,ooo+ stock in Dominion
  • Ken Goodman, NC House (Chairman, Main Street Delegates – $10,000+ in Duke
  • Corey Palumbo, Minority Whip, WV Senate – investments in Waco Oil & Gas, a firm that drills wells in the Marcellus shale fields

Other state legislators signing the letter, but whose financial disclosure forms did not indicate investments in firms associated with the ACP are:

Virginia: Del. William Howell, Speaker of the House; Del. M. Kirkland Cox, House Majority Leader; Sen. Richard Saslaw, Senate Minority Leader; and Del. Matthew James, Vice Chair of the Hampton Roads Caucus

West Virginia: Sen. Mitch Carmichael, President of the Senate; Sen. Ryan Ferns, Senate Majority Leader; Rep. Daryl Cowles, House Majority Leader; Sen. Roman Prezioso, Jr., Senate Minority Leader; and Rep. Timothy Miley, House Minority Leader

North Carolina: Rep. Timothy Moore, Speaker of the House; Sen. Phil Berger, Senate President Pro Tempore; Sen. Daniel Blue, Jr., Senate Minority Leader; and Rep. John Bell, IV, House Majority Leader

ABRA last week wrote to all state legislators in Virginia and West Virginia pre-emptively urging that they not endorse the ACP (as discussed in last week’s ABRA Update)
