NEWINGTON, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire attorney general’s office says a company that wants to expand its propane storage and distribution facility in Newington should undergo a full review.

The Portsmouth Herald (https://bit.ly/1bkZ42E) reports that Sea-3 wants to proceed without a review by the state Site Evaluation Committee, but the attorney general’s office has filed a motion opposing the exemption.

Senior Assistant Attorney General Peter Roth says the proposed expansion will greatly increase the number of propane railroad cars traveling through residential neighborhoods and that safety is a key question that has yet to be fully addressed.

The company says the demand for a comprehensive safety study ignores the substantial information the company already has provided. A public hearing on the exemption request is set for May 7.
