Now FERC is set to reconvene on September 20th with Trump’s Senate-approved commissioners Robert Powelson and Neil Chatterjee eager to use their newly minted rubber stamps.
Our best chance to stop them is with a big wave of citizen pressure right now, as they try and get back to work. Sign this petition, which we'll deliver at a big rally and lobby day on September 20 that aims to shut down FERC's first "public" meeting in months and keep it shut down by order of Congress.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has abused its power, our climate, and our communities for too long. I’m asking you to:
1. Enact a moratorium on new fracked gas pipelines and infrastructure until there are hearings into FERC’s abuses in permitting pipelines and reforms put in place that give communities a real voice in FERC’s permitting process;
2. Vote AGAINST the Dirty Energy bill (S1460), and any other legislation that would increase FERC’s authority and perversely speed up the approval process for fracked gas infrastructure. Communities and property owners nationwide need to have a say over all infrastructure projects.
3. Support new legislation (such as H.R. 3671, Rep. Gabbard's 'OFF ACT', or the Senate '100 by 50' act) and a federal permitting process that puts us on a path to 100% clean energy to create high paying jobs, a stable climate, and livable communities.
