There was more criticism Monday night of a proposed natural gas liquids pipeline that would cut through parts of Kentucky.

An estimated 100-people turned out for a town hall meeting in Lawrenceburg in Anderson County, where most of those in attendance opposed the pipeline, with many raising safety concerns.

The Bluegrass Pipeline is a partnership between two companies, Williams and Boardwalk.

The Vice President of Williams, Bill Lawson, was at the meeting.  He said the companies have a good track record for safety and that more people support the pipeline than many think.

He said that about 55-percent of the landowners approached have agreed to allow the pipeline to go through their property.

Some counties that could be affected by the pipeline have passed resolutions opposing the project.
