Travis County joins the growing opposition to a major underground natural gas pipeline

There's still plenty of concern about construction of Kinder Morgan's natural gas pipeline, which will run through Central Texas.  Even though the pipeline won't cross Travis County, Commissioner Brigid Shea said property owners could be at risk of imminent domain in the future.

Judge Sarah Eckhardt said there are not enough regulations that could prevent negative impacts to those land owners

Travis County, Hays County, and the City of Austin have all joined in opposition to the pipeline's construction.

In a 4-1 vote this week, the Commissioners Court joined Hays County and the City of Austin in passing a resolution in official opposition to the Permian Highway Pipeline.
