"Supreme Court Revives Mountain Valley Pipeline"

"The Supreme Court has accepted a request from the developer of the Mountain Valley pipeline to restart work on the embattled project.

In a short order issued Thursday, the justices granted an emergency application from Mountain Valley Pipeline LLC to toss out two “extraordinary stay orders” issued by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Those orders temporarily froze construction on the natural gas project.

Issued earlier in July, the 4th Circuit orders were immediately panned by proponents of the pipeline, including Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, one of the states the $6.6 billion project travels through."
