Senator Warren's Statement on Kinder Morgan's Decision to Suspend Work on the Proposed Northeast Energy Direct Pipeline

Washington, DC - United States Senator Elizabeth Warren released the following statement on Kinder Morgan's announcement that it will suspend its plans for the Northeast Energy Direct pipeline:

"Across Massachusetts, residents raised significant concerns about the impact of the proposed Northeast Energy Direct pipeline on homes, businesses, and our environment. This announcement confirms what our citizens have been saying since the beginning - this project simply isn't necessary to meet our energy needs. The Kinder Morgan pipeline was the wrong project at the wrong time, but as Massachusetts works to modernize our energy system and ensure that prices remain affordable for families and businesses, it is urgent that we upgrade aging infrastructure and invest in clean technologies of the future."
