Protect White Mountain National Forest is a new group with the specific goal of defeating Northern Pass as to protect the pristine-ness of the WMNF.
A list of great questions were posted. The most important, in our opinion, was this one:
Will New Hampshire Take a Vote on Northern Pass?
No. There will be no referendum or vote per se for the people of New Hampshire to express the popular will about this project. The decision will be made entirely by the regulatory and other agencies that would have to issue various permits to Northern Pass. The USFS’s decision whether or not to issue the Special Use Permit for the WMNF is based upon the Department of Energy’s Environmental Impact Statement. The USFS may reach a different conclusion than the DOE does, but it must use the DOE’s environmental assessment.
