At a Council session yesterday, residents told the Council that “they’ll be living in fear the rest of their lives” if the terminal is built, while AES representatives said that the FERC approval process will address safety concerns. According to a FERC spokesperson, local anti-LNG legislation is one factor FERC would consider in deciding whether to approve the terminal. Details are in today’s Baltimore Sun.
