Center for LNG President Bill Cooper told Platts LNG Daily [subscription required] that a bill proposed in the U.S. Senate that would repeal section 311 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPACT 2005) may actually limit state and local government involvement in the LNG project siting process. According to Cooper, prior to EPACT 2005, the only way state agencies could influence FERC’s LNG siting process was by intervening in the Commission’s proceeding.
