Jordan Cove State Comment Period Extension and Hearings
There is an important way you can help stop the LNG pipeline today. Please sign the petition or call Director Stephanie H. Cummins at 503-986-5224 today to ask the Department of State Lands (DSL) to give the public more time to comment on project impacts to public waterways.
The Oregon Department of State Lands (DSL) is one of the state agencies that can shut down the proposed Jordan Cove LNG export project. DSL is currently asking for public comments to help them evaluate whether to issue permits and easements across state owned land, or to deny them and protect our waterways and our communities. The Department has given only 30 days to dig into more than 3,000 pages of documents detailing these proposals, and has not provided any venue for people to give testimony in person! The Jordan Cove LNG project would threaten 400 streams, risk drilling accidents in our rivers, and allow public land to be leased for massive fossil fuel infrastructure, all while creating the largest source of climate pollution in the state.
