Gibson, Schreibman battle to the finish

(Continued)

Gibson said he opposed “taking land away from anyone who does not not want to” to provide a right of way to the pipeline planners.

“I think we can get a path that does not take private property away from people who do not want to give up their land,” he said.

Schreibman said he was pleased that “FERC (the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) was insisting on alternative plans for the footprint of it” after many landowners objected to a proposed route that would have the transmission system traverse their land.

Schreibman also said he believes the pipeline project should be examined to determine “whether there is an actual need for it, or whether this is being done primarily to get a toehold for local fracking.”
