  • Yesterday, New Jersey Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr., sent a letter to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie urging him to “use the authority vested to [him] under the Deepwater Port Act” and veto Liberty Natural Gas’s proposed Port Ambrose Deepwater LNG Import Terminal for offshore New Jersey and New York. The letter states that because “domestic natural gas production has been steadily increasing ...[I]t simply does not make sense to build a terminal to import natural gas into the United States.” Further, “[c]onstruction of this terminal will also be extremely damaging to our coastal environment, disturbing fish habitats and damaging marine life.”
