Fifty-Two organizations, representing thousands of individual members in Virginia, wrote to the Virginia congressional delegation on May 16 urging them to oppose “possible federal legislation that would allow the highly controversial Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) to be built across the Appalachian Trail and Blue Ridge Parkway.”  The groups’ letter noted that “Dominion Energy is pressuring some members of Congress to consider legislation that could make it easier to build the ACP along the developers’ preferred route. Such legislation would be inappropriate given the ongoing review of the project by agencies and the courts.”  Separate letters were sent to Senators Warner and Kaine (click here for a copy) and to the eleven Virginia members of the U.S. House of Representatives.  ABRA and many of its member organizations were among the signatories to the letter.
