Nevada AG Addressed Climate and Environmental Justice Reviews in Natural Gas Projects

Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford filed comments to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in response to the agency’s proposals for changes to its process for certifying new interstate natural gas facilities. The comments focused on FERC’s commitment to assess the need for projects. The AG highlighted examples of project approvals where FERC’s failure to comprehensively review evidence on whether a project is needed has resulted in unused pipeline capacity.
