Congressman David Wu (D-Ore.) has introduced an amendment to the continuing resolution omnibus appropriations bill that would prevent federal funds from being used to implement Section 3(e) of the Natural Gas Act, effectively blocking FERC's review of LNG import projects. In a press release, Rep. Wu said that FERC’s authority over LNG siting decisions is “overbearing and overbroad” and that the present review process “is preventing states and communities from having any meaningful input - let alone decision-making authority - over local land use.” The press release also notes that Wu plans to reintroduce legislation to repeal FERC authority to approve LNG facility siting in the 112th Congress.
