Can you – tonight, if possible – call Senators Wyden and Merkley about Senate hearings tomorrow morning (east coast time) on two Trump nominees to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC)? If need be, you can leave a voicemail message for them. Wyden is on the Senate Energy Committee that is holding the hearings and will have a chance to ask the nominees for specific commitments. Merkley is not on the committee but, as a senator from an affected state, can speak out and influence the process. Unfortunately, we can’t assume that either of our senators will demand commitments from the nominees that they will protect Oregonians from the proposed Jordan Cove fracked gas export terminal and pipeline. The project was rejected twice by FERC last year, but the company has re-filed for approval since the Trump administration took office.read moreAt the end of the first 100 Days of the Trump Administration, thousands will be coming together in downtown Medford to march for clean energy jobs, protecting our family farms and farmworkers, climate action, and more.
