Not even FERC can get information and answers from insurance companies as to how this pipeline could potentially affected landowners.
I was a proponent of the Constitution Pipeline since its inception. And thought it was a great thing for the area. But after dealing with the people from the gas company, I have come to the realization they only care about the stockholders and wall street.
Just in case anyone you know is on the fence, you might want to give them this list:
Bob Lidsky's position on why eminent domain may be the best option for landowners - and the best way to stop the pipeline.
I would ask that we remember that our ancestors came to this country for their freedom, and fought and died for our freedom to speak. When we deny even one of our neighbors their freedom to speak we dishonor all those who have died for that freedom. May you and all beings be happy and free from suffering.

Despite the ongoing efforts of the sponsors of the Constitution Pipeline to win local support for the project, those efforts have failed in the Town of Davenport. The message is clear: Constitution Pipeline, you are not wanted here.
So, the other day I was wondering why some portions of this country were dealing with shortages of propane and the accompanying price spikes. Since information is readily available via the internet, I searched on” propane shortage” to check out the situation. The article I read cited two main reasons for the current shortage: first, a lot of propane was used last fall to help dry a bumper crop of corn, and secondly, more propane was exported out of the United States than usually occurs because market pricing made it more profitable to export than to retain the propane for domestic use. Drying corn grown in this country? Corn is used in a wide variety of foods for people plus animal feeds and to make ethanol, thus this part of the explanation seemed very reasonable to me. Exporting domestic supplies of propane, thereby creating semi-localized shortages and huge price increases for people who need this fuel to heat their homes during this very challenging winter? Troubling, to say the least. What does this have to do with Constitution Pipeline? Although we are told the fracked gas from Pennsylvania filling the Constitution Pipeline, if built, will be sent to domestic markets to the benefit of domestic customers, it seems that world market pricing will have much more to do with the destination of the gas than words on paper in an application sent to FERC. What do you think?
This is a rather straightforward way to kill a pipeline - or at least a pipeline route. . .
