Staunton Democratic Committee Opposes the Atlantic Coast Pipeline

On March 14, 2017 the Staunton Democratic Committee passed the following motion unanimously:   Be it resolved that the Staunton Democratic Committee opposes the construction of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline because the burning of fossil fuels causes global warming and the pipeline is a major investment in fossil fuel technology; and because our basic power needs can be met without it; and because it has an adverse effect on safety, water quality and the natural environment; and it exercises eminent domain without serving the public interest.
