San Francisco Chronicle Urges Passage of SB 426

The San Francisco Chronicle has come out strong in favor of SB 426, Sen. Joe Simitian's bill to require the California Energy Commission to evaluate and rank LNG proposals on the basis of health, safety, economic potential, environment and national security.

The Chronicle notes that with such a wide range of projects that includes everything from floating terminals far out at sea to projects in high density urban areas, the bill will allow for a thorough, realistic evaluation of which projects pose the least threat to California.
