Rhode Island State Rep. Raymond E. Gallison, Jr., (D) has proposed H 7608, a bill that would require LNG vessels to pay $1 million in tolls to each of seven shoreline communities the vessel would pass to reach the Weaver’s Cove LNG terminal. According to the Herald News (Fall River, Mass.), the bill also would require LNG vessels delivering to the terminal to carry at least $1 billion in liability insurance and post bonds of several hundred million dollars for each transit. Rep. Gallison notes that the legislation is designed to make it almost impossible for an LNG developer to comply with these requirements.
