Who is the LNG Task Force? The PA Legislature passed a bill last year, and Governor Wolf signed it into law, setting up a “Philadelphia LNG Task Force” targeting southeast PA in the Delaware River Watershed as a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export hub, egardless of the public safety and health harms of explosive and polluting LNG, the inevitable environmental damage, and the exacerbation of the climate crisis.
The prior two hearings held by the Task Force, chaired by Representative Martina White, did not provide opportunity for community members to speak, including CRCQL members. Virtually all speakers were had picked by the Task Force for their bias in support of LNG Exports.
