Senate Committee Advances Energy Bill
WASHINGTON - Governors, mayors and local officials would have little chance to block construction of a liquefied natural gas facility under an energy bill that advanced Thursday from a Senate committee.
A provision in the bill would give the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission exclusive jurisdiction over final approval of such a terminal. A dozen or more such facilities probably will be built in the next decade.
The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee advanced the nontax portion of the energy legislation by a 21-1 vote.
