Second Try for Kansas-East Coast Wind Power Line

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Supporters of a transmission line that would carry wind power from western Kansas to the East Coast say they will present the proposal again in Missouri, which rejected it last year. But opponents of the Grain Belt Express Clean Line say they are ready to stop the proposal again. The proposed transmission line would run from Kansas through Missouri and Illinois to a substation in Indiana, where it will connect with a grid to take power farther east.  Kansas, Illinois and Indiana regulators have approved the project but the Missouri Public Service Commission rejected it after strong opposition from many residents. The Columbia Daily Tribune reports Clean Line Energy Partners, the Houston-based company leading the project, plans to refile the application with the Missouri commission in the coming weeks.
