Opposition Builds For Power Line Project

The construction of an 1100 mile power transmission line from Wyoming and across Idaho is meeting with more resistance.  Cassia County Commissioners are supporting a letter to state officials that the power line is “unnecessary and ill advised.”

According to the Times News the letter was drafted by attorney Doug Balfour who represents Cassia and Power counties in the Gateway West project.  The letter states that the $2-billion dollar cost of the power line would eventually be passed on to ratepayers.  The letter also asserts that the assumptions used by Idaho Power Company to justify the project are faulty and that the reasons for the project simply no longer exist.  Idaho Power officials have not commented on the letter stating that they have not yet seen its contents.
