LNG pipeline opposition

Medford, Ore., — Governor Kate Brown is in Medford tonight. The governor’s holding a fundraiser at RoxyAnn Winery in East Medford but she wasn’t alone.

Protesters were outside the winery expressing their concerns over the Jordan Cove LNG Pipeline Project.

Even though the project has been denied by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the company is appealing.

The LNG Pipeline would be a 232 mile natural gas transmission system that runs through Klamath, Jackson, Douglas and Coos Counties.

The Jackson County Board of Commissioners has come out in opposition of the proposed pipeline, citing the use of eminent domain for private economic benefit, and the impact to local property owners.

But Governor Kate Brown has yet to take a public stance on the matter.

She will join us tomorrow for our 5 0n 5 feature interview at 5, and we plan to ask her if the project has her support then.
