At least a dozen new pipeline projects have been either approved or proposed to take advantage of plentiful, low-cost natural gas supplies in neighboring states. For consumers and businesses, that means cheaper electricity and heat, the creation of thousands of new jobs, and the potential to convert large fleets of vehicles to a less-polluting fuel than gasoline, according to advocates. The downside: many of these new pipelines are crossing land that was previously preserved as open space and farmland with taxpayers dollars. Do these new projects have to end in a stalemate? That and other critical questions will be explored in this upcoming NJ Spotlight Roundtable.
Continental breakfast will be served.
Admission is $25.
