15] – On Mon., Sept. 25 at noon join the 14th Rally for a Safety Study for Cove Point at 110 State Circle, Annapolis 21401-1924. Rally every week outside Governor Hogan's mansion to demand a safety study for Virginia-based Dominion Energy's fracked gas refinery, power plant and export terminal being built in the neighborhood of Cove Point. Families who live there deserve to know the dangers they face. Nowhere else in the world has such a facility been put so close to a densely-populated residential community. Call Gov. Hogan at 410 974 3901 and ask for a safety study (QRA) for Cove Point. Visit www.WeAreCovePoint.org.
