Summary:

On April 15, 2008, various Western state officials offered testimony at a joint oversight hearing of the House Natural Resources Committee and the National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands Subcommittee on the use of FOIA to find out about proposed designation of “energy corridors,” containing oil, gas, electricity and hydrogen, through communities. Representatives from government and businesses, citizens' groups, and Native American reservations in 11 Western states, including New Mexico, Arizona and California testified, with many witnesses charging that the environmental impact may be severe and that agencies involved did not make maps of the corridor available.
