Georgia State Properties Commission agenda for Wednesday has nothing
on it about Sabal Trail or easements under Georgia rivers.
So the river land giveaway
by the GA DNR board last month
will not be confirmed this month.
So there’s more time to contact the SPC board to stop Sabal Trail from crossing the
Withlacoochee River, Okapilco Creek, Ochlockonee River, Flint River, and Chattahoochee River.
SPC doesn’t provide any contacts for their board members, but
here are their main contacts:
270 Washington Street, Suite 2-129
Atlanta, Georgia 30334
Steve Stancil, State Property Officer, 404-656-3253
Marvin Woodward, Deputy State Property Officer, 404-463-5608
Frank Smith, Deputy Executive Director, 404-656-5602
And we know how to reach the governor’s office:

Two weeks for all the
rushing to make the
20 November 2015 final EIS notice date,
for a final decision 18 February 2016.
The Draft EIS released Friday 4 September 2015
is very long, but the most basic question is very short:
why is FERC rushing to rubberstamp the unnecessary,
destructive, and hazardous Sabal Trail pipeline and its fracked methane siblings Hillabee Transco and FSC
when there’s neither need nor public benefit?
The Sunshine State should go
straight to solar power.
If you don’t want any of these pipelines,
you can send in your comments both
to FERC and to state and local agencies and
and show up at
these FERC meetings to protest.
You can also still file
a motion to intervene with FERC.
And don’t forget to
call Georgia Gov. Deal.
Filed with FERC 4 September 2015 as
Accession Number: 20150904-3011,
“Notice of Availability of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Proposed Southeast Market Pipelines Project re Florida Southeast Connection, LLC et al under CP14-554 et al.” Continue reading FERC meetings for Draft Environmental Impact Statement 28 Sep 2015 – 8 Oct 2015 →
Now’s the time to ask your state legislators to help Rep. Ealum
oppose Sabal Trail’s proposed fracked methane pipeline.

of all the Georgia state House and Senate members from the counties

August 7th deadline for comments to GA-EPD about the proposed Albany compressor station.
And don’t forget to
call Georgia Governor Nathan Deal and sign the petition to him,
and you can still
ecomment to FERC.
Call to Action by State Representative Darrel Bush Ealum

Atlanta has heard about Sabal Trail, Palmetto Project, and several other
proposed pipeline projects three times now from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
It’s time to act.
Greg Bluestein, AJC,
Pipeline project fuels anger in Georgia,
Their proposal comes as pipeline projects — and controversy
surrounding them — pop up across Georgia. A 157-mile Sabal
Trail Pipeline that would cross nine southwest Georgia counties has
sparked outrage in Albany and Valdosta. And Atlanta Gas Light wants
to begin pumping gas from Coweta County
to Dalton by 2017.
But Kinder Morgan’s proposal has struck a throbbing nerve, in part
because of the length of the proposed pipeline — the 320-mile
route stretches by Augusta, Savannah and Jacksonville — and in
part because of the threat of eminent domain hanging over the
“Where do we draw the line? There are no reset buttons,”
Troy Davis, a local landowner, said at one of the town hall meetings
that Kinder Morgan called to calm fears about the project. “It
will be a Kroger, a CVS, a Burger King that comes to this community
and says, ‘Hey, we have a necessity for this.’ ”
That’s why the real solution is for the Georgia legislature
to revoke eminent domain for private companies.
But the legislature doesn’t meet until January,
and we need to stop these pipelines before then.

After you’ve signed
the petition to GA Gov. Nathan Deal,
you can call or write him and other state, federal, and local elected and appointed officials
and ask them to oppose the unnecessary, destructive, and dangerous Sabal Trail
fracked methane pipeline.
Georgia is the fastest growing solar market in the country, and the
Georgia legislature just passed unanimously and the Governor signed
a law to facilitate financing solar power.
Help the pipeline shrink away from the Georgia sunshine!
The great state of Georgia should protect its citizens from
this invader from Texas that threatens our water, our land, and our
way of life.

vehemently opposed Kinder Morgan’s Palmetto petroleum products Pipeline.

And if Georgia objects to KMI’s Palmetto pipeline,
Georgia should object to Spectra’s Sabal Trail pipeline.
WRDW, 7 May 2015,
Georgia’s Governor says the state is against pipeline project,
“We’re going to object from the state level and I think that process
will then go to the courts for a judge to decide,” Gov. Deal said.

Kinder Morgan contributed to the campaigns of Georgia Governor Nathan Deal
and Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, and to numerous other elected officials,
similar to Spectra Energy PAC and many other pipeline companies or
associated political action committees.
Could this have something to do with how Georgia state officials
are not being very helpful to the citizens who overwhelmingly
oppose both Kinder Morgan’s proposed Palmetto petroleum products
pipeline through eastern Georgia and Spectra’s proposed Sabal Trail
fracked methane pipeline through southwest Georgia?
Could it explain why the Georgia government seems to be treating both pipelines
as if they were public-private partnerships with the state?
