The Coalition for the Expansion of Pipeline Infrastructure (CEPI) thanks its members for their ongoing support. CEPI has been busy educating the public on the many benefits of the responsible construction of natural gas pipelines. We’re excited to share some of that activity with you.

FERC Meeting Recap

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) recently held a series of public comment meetings in Ohio, Michigan, and West Virginia regarding its draft Environmental Impact Statement (dEIS) for the Rover Pipeline. A number of CEPI members attended these meetings and expressed their support for the Rover Pipeline.

Among the attending members of CEPI were the Michigan Land Improvement Contractors Association, the Michigan Forest Products Council, Michigan Laborers-Employers Cooperation and Education Trust, Ohio Chemistry Technology Council, Ohio Hotel & Lodging Association, Ohio Manufacturers Association, Ohio State Grange, and the United Association

Overall, 63 people spoke in favor of the pipeline and over 250 attended to support the project. CEPI was encouraged by the impressive turnout, and we look forward to growing support for the Rover Pipeline.
