CHUCK TODD: “Is the federal – so what FERC did, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, is that enough or not enough for you?”

RALPH NORTHAM: “Well again as I explained earlier, we are working with the DEQ on the permitting, working with the corps of engineers, and at the end of the day yes FERC will have the final decision because it is a federal decision…”
