  • Backers of these carbon pipelines include big-name politicians from both sides of the aisle. Likewise, federal regulations and tax credits are generous and bountiful under both the Trump and Biden administration. Some key Democrats, like Rep. Khanna, are opposed to expanded “45Q” tax credits for carbon capture and storage projects. Additionally, Rep. Raskin is working on federal legislation against eminent domain for private gain, and Rep. Malinowski introduced similar legislation, the Fairness for Landowners Facing Eminent Domain Act, which would reform the federal Natural Gas Act but not have any affect on oil or carbon pipelines.
