Despite the immense volume of impacted community members and NC Water Protectors who urged NC lawmakers to sustain Gov. Cooper's veto of HB600, the NCGA voted to override the veto.
We thank everyone who took action, and reiterate our disappointment in the Southgate district representatives and bill co-sponsors who did not listen to the overwhelming concerns of their constituents, and instead chose to clear the way for this dangerous and unwanted polluting pipeline.

HB600 aims to expedite the proposed Mountain Valley Pipeline Southgate Extension by weakening and restricting the 401 water quality permit, which is needed for energy transmission projects. It slashes review timelines and opportunities for public input, and deems a permit granted if the severely understaffed agency fails to issue a decision on time. Since 2018, MVP Southgate’s 401 permit has been denied 3 times by NCDEQ (Department of Environmental Quality) and these new measures tip the scales in favor of Southgate, and future destructive proposals across the state.
