Guest Opinion: Merkley stands up for landowners on Jordan Cove

Guest Opinion  by Stacey McLaughlin, Medford Mail Tribune, December 17, 2017

As landowners threatened by the Pacific Connector gas pipeline, we are elated at Sen. Jeff Merkley’s announcement that he will not support a project dependent on seizing private properties through eminent domain for a foreign corporations’ profit. Hundreds of Oregon families have been held hostage far too long on behalf of this speculative venture, already twice denied by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Senator Merkley’s shift comes as welcome news.
