HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP — Dozens gathered atop Baldpate Mountain preserve in Hopewell Township on Wednesday to endorse U.S. Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman's plan to propose a bill in Congress to revamp pipeline approvals.

Watson Coleman said she will introduce the Safe and Accountable Federal Energy Review for Pipelines Act of 2016, or SAFER Pipelines Act.

Dozens of affected residents also attended the announcement at the scenic backdrop of Baldpate, near sites where the proposed PennEast pipeline will carve through their land.

"We looked at the way in which (the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) does business and we recognized that they're doing business in isolation, and that's not helpful to communities like ours," Watson Coleman said.

There will be a series of public hearings following the release.    Dates, time and locations will be announced.
