Same controversy, different pipeline. On July 29th, 22 protestors were arrested by Massachusetts State Police (MSP) during an ongoing pipeline protest in Sandisfield. Known as the Connecticut Expansion Pipeline, the natural gas pipeline loop is currently being built below New York, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. Legal battles and public backlash have surged from its inception in 201,4 when Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co., a subsidiary of energy giant Kinder Morgan Inc., submitted a federal application for development.
