The bill would require power line projects to be reviewed by the Kansas Electric Transmission Authority before they are considered by the Kansas Corporation Commission.
Representative Sharon Schwartz says the bill is in response to the corporation commission's decision to grant approval to Clear Line Energy's plan to build a 700-mile transmission line to carry wind energy to the east.

I am not a gardener. Plants wither and die at my very glance. I don’t even like it when I accidentally touch leaves, because they can itch or harbor bugs or any number of dreadful things. I envy those who can nurture a plant from shoot to fruit, but I am not one of them. I’m happy just to be able to use the produce and flowers that talented gardeners and farmers offer.
