Transmission Line Tid-Bits
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 • Posted August 25, 2010

This week Kay Trostle will file the P-Line Intervention Association’s responses to staff’s first request for information and first request for admission. (The 1st step of the intervention process.) Lee Lasater and crew are collating all intervenors information and grouping answers to simplify everything as much as possible for the lawyers.

An analysis by ERCOT found that the Gillespie to Newton transmission line wasn’t needed to meet the states current electric needs. That’s great news, let’s hope the same applies to the Mc Camey D to Kendall line. Keep the political pressure on.

Austin attorney David Smith has joined the legal team. David will concentrate on environmental issues and help lay a strong, legal foundation to take this case to the next level if necessary. David has a strong background with NEPA and related issues at the federal level. He is widely known at state and federal levels and will ensure that the right people hear our case.

This past week we have had several people join the Intervention Fund from Gillespie and Menard Counties. Everyones support has been great. More newsto follow next week on strategy and specific intervenors.
