Call to Action by State Representative Darrel Bush Ealum,

Sabal Trail is a reckless proposal –GA State Senator Sims to FERC
The Sabal Pipeline proposed location is a “reckless” proposal that negates the health and safety of current and future residents of Dougherty County / Albany, Georgia. Many of the residents in this part of the United States of America live below the poverty line. When these kinds of negative environmental proposals are made, the residents, again, feel abandoned and marginalized by a government that was elected to protect “the least among us”! Officials that are charged with these decisions are also viewed as insensitive and empowered to place these kinds of projects in neighborhoods that have long since been written off as non-essential “collateral damage”!
Four Congress members demand Sabal Trail move off of Albany, GA
The statement in FERC’s DEIS that the compressor station would not be located in an environmental justice community is not correct.
Sanford D. Bishop, Jr., Member of Congress
John Lewis, Member of Congress
Henry C. “Hank” Johnson, Jr., Member of Congress
David Scott, Member of Congress
