Watchdog Group Wants Special Session On Pipeline
Government watchdog group Common Cause of Kentucky is urging Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear to call a special session this fall.
The session would seek to pass legislation protecting private landowners from companies wanting to use eminent domain for a controversial pipeline project. The Bluegrass Pipeline is being built by Williams Co. and Boardwalk Pipeline Partners of Texas.
It would cross northern and central Kentucky. The pipeline would carry a liquid byproduct of the natural gas refining process used to make plastics and medical supplies, among other products. Richard Beliles, chairman of Common Cause Kentucky, says the pipeline would pose a hazard risk to the state.
