The Missouri Public Service Commission has established a deadline of Sept. 14 for intervenors to apply in the case of a proposed energy transmission line that would run across the state.
The project, called the Grain Line Express, would carry wind energy from Kansas to cities in the east, running 780 miles across multiple states. Missouri is the last of those states where the project does not have regulatory approval.
The project was previously denied by the Public Service Commission, but it has been revived and has the approval of backers including Gov. Jay Nixon, the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry and some major corporations in the state.
More than 67 municipalities in Missouri will negotiate to be included on the line.
