TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A government panel on Thursday approved a plan to construct another natural gas pipeline in New Jersey’s Pinelands, despite criticism that both would threaten the environment.

The New Jersey Pinelands Commission’ vote was 8 to 4, with one abstention. The panel’s director in 2015 had unilaterally approved the application, but courts ruled the full commission must vote.
