Grain Belt Express Line hits a snag in Illinois
The Grain Belt Express Line has hit another snag.
A judgement has now come down from the 5th District of the Appellate Court of Illinois that reverses a ruling where the Illinois Commerce Commission gave a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity to the Indiana company that wanted to build and manage a high voltage electric service transmission line that would connect to wind generation facilities.
The Grain Belt Express Line would go through several counties in the Tri-States.
The court ruled the Commission didn't have the authority to grant a non-public utility that certificate.
Happening in Missouri, there is a decision in favor of the landowners in one district, and a decision in favor of the Grain Belt Express Line in another.
That decision is now in the hands of the Missouri Supreme Court.
