Morgantown Dominion-Post – More than 75 people jammed the Monongalia County Commission chamber Monday evening for a public comment hearing on the proposed new Longview Power plants – one gas-fired, one solar. Read article.

The vast majority were members of the North Central West Virginia Building and Construction Trades Council who turned out in force to support the projects. Only 13 people spoke: five in favor, seven against, one neutral but offering some cautions.
