Governor Kate Brown responded to the protestors with the following statement:

Governor Brown appreciates the concerns that Oregonians have raised and encourages them to participate in the public process and to reach out to Oregon’s congressional delegation. Proposed LNG projects must go through both federal and state permitting processes to determine if they meet applicable environmental standards. The Governor’s role is limited beyond ensuring that agencies and commissions process applications lawfully. In
this capacity, Governor Brown expects Oregon’s state agencies to follow all laws and regulatory processes to the letter.
