A new Ohio-Michigan coalition of businesses, trade groups and labor unions is trying to show a federal agency that there is widespread public support for natural gas pipelines.
The group, called the Coalition for the Expansion of Pipeline Infrastructure, includes the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, the Ohio Manufacturers Association, the Ohio Chemistry and Technology Council, the Ohio State Grange and the Ohio Hotel and Lodging Association.
Its formation comes at a time when two major pipelines to carry natural gas from Ohio’s Utica Shale to Michigan are seeking approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

The Nexus Pipeline would cross northern Stark, southern Summit and Medina counties.Continue reading about this article by clicking right here. Visit this group's website by clicking here.
