Mountain Valley Pipeline developers file federal suit against Fayette Co. Commission

CHARLESTON, WV (BY: BRAD MCELHINNY, WV METRONEWS)  Developers of the Mountain Valley Pipeline are suing the three members of the Fayette County Commission, saying they’ve unreasonably delayed progress on the proposed 300-mile, $3.5 billion project.
