CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Opposition to a proposed pipeline that would cross 17 New Hampshire towns is growing, at least among the state’s top elected officials.

New Hampshire Public Radio reports (http://bit.ly/1m1oR5L ) that Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte told constituents Tuesday that she opposes the project because her questions haven’t been adequately answered. The next day, Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan told the station the project should not move forward if the company doesn’t address the concerns of affected communities. U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster, also a Democrat, went further, calling the pipeline a “bad deal for New Hampshire.”

U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta, a Republican, followed with his opposition on Thursday. Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen has called for more transparency in the process.

The pipeline would carry natural gas into the region from Pennsylvania.
