Debt ceiling deal would greenlight gas pipeline across Appalachian Trail

A deal between President Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, if approved by Congress, would clear the way for the Mountain Valley Pipeline between West Virginia and Virginia that has been held up by environmental challenges.

While pipeline champion Sen. Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, applauded the legislative workaround, Rep. Raúl Grijalva, D-Arizona, was highly critical. Sen. Tim Kaine, a Virginia Democrat, signaled he would try to have the provision removed from the debt ceiling agreement.
