Gov. Terry McAuliffe on Thursday reaffirmed his commitment to making sure that any pipeline built in Virginia protects the state’s environmental resources.
“It’s got to protect our environment,” said McAuliffe, speaking on the “Ask the Governor” monthly radio call-in show on WRVA (1140 AM) in Richmond.
“Let’s pick the best route that doesn’t affect the homeowners. I want a route that doesn’t affect our pristine environmental areas.”
McAuliffe’s statements came in response to a caller who pointed out that at least two other pipeline routes are proposed to go through Virginia in addition to the Atlantic Coast Pipeline that is being promoted by Dominion Virginia Power.
