What is FERC?
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is the most dangerous federal agency many Americans have never heard of.
We care about FERC because it is in charge of approving–or not–interstate gas pipelines and infrastructure projects.
FERC has turned down only 2 gas pipeline projects out of over 500 submitted over the past 30 years.
