Ore. Secretary of State Investigating NorthernStar’s Conduct During Recent Referendum

A spokesperson for the office of Kate Brown, Oregon’s Secretary of State, told The Daily News (Longview, Wash.) that an investigation of NorthernStar Natural Gas’ conduct during a recent referendum remains active and will not be complete until May. The article notes that NorthernStar is accused of improper polling activities and failing to disclose some of its election expenses during the company’s campaign against a referendum prohibiting construction of natural gas pipelines on land zoned for open space, parks, or recreation. The measure affects the planned route for a gas pipeline that will connect to the company’s Bradwood Landing LNG import terminal.
