Amends the Natural Gas Act to repeal the exclusive authority of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to approve or deny an application for the siting, construction, expansion, and operation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals.

Predicates FERC approval or denial authority regarding such application upon the express concurrence of each state affected by the application.

Directs FERC to: (1) require such application to identify each employee or agent engaged in activities to persuade communities of the benefits of the approval; and (2) maintain a publicly available database listing all such personnel.
