pipeline-protestGovernor McAuliffe says he has no problem that pipeline protestors greeted him today in Roanoke before he attended a Clean Energy forum hosted by the Regional Chamber – but he also claimed the state has no say in deciding whether the Mountain Valley natural gas pipeline – or the Atlantic Coast Pipeline – receives federal regulatory approval. About 15 pipeline opponents protested McAuliffe’s appearance at the event. They say the governor has the authorization under the Clean Water Act to deny permits for the pipelines.
