PennEast Pipeline Asks FERC for Expedited Final Approval

Drumbeat Continues: Tax PA Shale & Give Money to Teacher’s Unions

The steady, daily drumbeat coming from mainstream (i.e. fake) news outlets in Pennsylvania is that the PA House of Representatives is sitting on its hands, dithering, not doing anything about the so-called budget crisis.

FERC Open Meetings Restart on Sept 20, Some Votes Coming Sooner
