PENNEAST PIPELINE

SEPTEMBER 2019

The appeals court rejected PennEast’s argument that the Natural Gas Act delegates to pipeline-builders the federal government’s exemption to a state’s sovereign immunity. It’s unclear whether the federal government can delegate its power to override a state’s 11th Amendment immunity, the appeals court said, but it need not answer that question because “nothing in the text of the NGA suggests that Congress intended the statute to have such a result. PennEast’s condemnation suits are thus barred by the state’s Eleventh Amendment immunity,” the appeals court said.

PennEast’s Application for Amendment to Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity which was filed on February 1st, 2019 in Docket No CP19-78 *Note the New Docket Number*

Do not depend on the timeliness and thoroughness of the above pass-through information.  IT IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE.  Individual homeowners should stay in close contact with their own attorneys.  Notwithstanding, HALT will do its best to share this type of information as received.

REMEMBER – the award of the power of eminent domain and the ability of PennEast to conduct surveys are in no way a final indication that this proposed pipeline will be approved and constructed. There are many steps remaining. HALT members will continue to be diligent in their commitment and action to protect their land, their communities and the environment from this unneeded, unwanted and harmful proposal.
