Many people and groups oppose Liquefied Natural Gas in Oregon for environmental reasons.
One bill oringinally introduced by the Bradwood Landing L-N-G facility, though, is facing opposition from the Northwest Property Rights Coalition.
House bill three-oh-five-eight was designed to make it easier for companies to apply for permits to work on private lands.
As the law currently stands, if a company like Bradwood Landing wanted to build a pipeline across private lands, it would have to get the landowner’s permission before applying for a permit.
This bill would change that, so that a company could apply for a state permit without notifying affected property owners.
