Statement From Councilman Seth Yurdin
Today I sent a letter to Anton C. Porter, Executive Director, of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission expressing my opposition to National Grid’s proposal to the Fields Point Liquefaction Facility in the Port of Providence. I have requested Mr. Porter extend the 30-day comment period to a full 90-days allowing for more time to investigate, and if appropriate, challenge the claims and terms in the Environmental Assessment.
I stand in opposition with numerous environmental advocacy organizations and local community groups including the Sierra Club, the Environmental Justice League of Rhode Island, the Providence Student Union, and with countless residents across the state of Rhode Island.
Councilman Seth Yurdin, Ward One
