Representing the 10th District of Pennsylvania

Marino Slams NYSDEC for Rejecting Constitution Pipeline Project

May 4, 2016
Press Release

Washington, D.C.—Congressman Tom Marino (R-PA) released the following statement in response to the decision by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to deny the Section 401 Water Quality Certification for the Constitution Pipeline Project:

“The Constitution Pipeline is a common sense proposal that will create numerous good paying jobs for hardworking Americans. Once again, politicians have allowed  special interests to cloud their judgment. This show of political might will only cost the United States jobs and further halt economic growth. Even worse, blocking the pipeline increases reliance on foreign sources of natural gas rather than utilizing the abundant supply we have here at home. This is an incredible loss for the Commonwealth.”
