Hundreds of Missouri landowners have signed a petition opposing electric lines crossing their property.
The lines would carry electricity from wind farms in Kansas to users on the East Coast. Clean Line Energy Partners, LLC of Houston, Texas announced plans in July for the 750 mile long high voltage line from Kansas to Indiana. The proposed route for the line, named the Grain Belt Express would cross Missouri from St. Joseph to Hannibal between Highway 36 and Interstate 70. Landowners fear property values will drop and they believe there could be adverse health effects to people and livestock if the lines cross their property. Clean Line Energy officials say they are looking for input on the proposed route of the line.
