State Doesn't Need Impact Study

Governor Charlie Baker's  administration is ruling that an Environmental Impact Report is needed  for natural gas expansion projects in Agawam and Longmeadow. 

Energy and environment secretary Matthew Beaton signed a  certificate earlier this month under the Massachusetts Environmental  Protection Act requiring the action from Tennessee Gas Pipeline, a  subsidiary of Kinder Morgan. 

Tennessee is planning facilities on both  sides of the Connecticut River to support expansion efforts by  Massachusetts-based Columbia Gas.
