NEW MILFORD TOWNSHIP -- New York State denied the permit to construct a major pipeline planned to link natural gas from northeastern Pennsylvania with New York and New England.
The Constitution Pipeline was the reason trees were cut down here in Susquehanna County last month, even though the owners of that maple tree farm fought to save them.
They had argued that should wait at least until New York state made its decision.
Pipeline officials said they are still committed to the project and are considering an appeal.
They had argued this pipeline would bring jobs and be vital for the gas industry.
