SCHOHARIE, N.Y. (AP) - The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has announced a series of public meetings to let the public weigh in on the second interstate natural gas pipeline proposed to carry gas from Pennsylvania to markets in the Northeast and Canada.

The Northeast Energy Direct pipeline proposed by a subsidiary of Houston-based Kinder Morgan would primarily follow the same route through New York as the Constitution Pipeline, which has FERC approval pending a state permit.

The Northeast project would build about 412 miles of new 36-inch pipeline through Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Connecticut, and nine new compressor stations.

The 14 public meetings between July 14 and Aug. 12 include Castleton-on-Hudson on July 14 and 15, and concurrent meetings in Schoharie and Oneonta on July 16.
