Oregon Gubernatorial Candidates Discuss Views on LNG Import Proposals

Several candidates running for governor in Oregon participated in a debate last night. The Oregonian reports that the event was organized by a number of environmental groups and featured discussion of the LNG import project proposed in the state. Democratic candidates Bill Bradbury and John Kitzhaber offered their views on the LNG proposals, with Bradbury saying that the state should take all steps to block the LNG projects. In contrast, Kitzhaber said that domestic natural gas supplies are preferable to imports, but that he was not willing to discount LNG imports to the state completely.
