WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Benjamin L. Cardin expressed disappointment that the Senate failed to include a provision in the energy bill that would restore the authority of state and local governments in decisions concerning the location and construction of new Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminals.
"While I am disappointed that this provision was not included in the Energy bill now being considered by the Senate, I am committed to ensuring that state and local governments have an opportunity to participate in the decision-making process regarding the location of these plants," said Senator Cardin. "Communities that bear the burden of hosting these facilities should have a meaningful voice in where they are located."
