The U.S. Forest Service (NFS) filed on February 11 a petition for review of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals decision in December vacating the NFS permit for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline to cross the Appalachian National Scenic Trail.
Dominion Energy is making a concerted effort to convince Congress to grant permission for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline to cross the Blue Ridge Parkway, authority for which was withdrawn by the National Park Service (per article above). This is according to several news reports and conversations that some ABRA members have had with Members of Congress and staff.
