Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, appearing recently in Bath County at the dedication of a new solar energy facility at a local school, reiterated his strong support for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, which would desecrate a significant portion of the county.  In responding to a reporter’s question, he said “as I’ve always said, first off, it’s not the governor’s office, it’s a FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) permit, and there are several permits it would go through the state.  But that’s determined by the General Assembly on the regulations and how they’re defined.”
