We, the undersigned residents of Missouri hereby oppose the unnecessary, massive, for-profit transmission line Grain Belt Express and request that Missouri Public Service Commission once again DENY approval of its application for Certificate of Convenience and Necessity. The Commission recently determined Grain Belt Express would not promote the public interest and that any actual benefits to the general public from the project are outweighed by the burdens on affected landowners. If constructed, these structures and high voltage transmission lines would require taking 5000 acres of highly productive private land for the easements and significantly decrease property values on thousands of properties on or near the line. The line would also create obstacles to farming that would reduce productivity; scar the landscape forever; eliminate future land use options; and negatively impact hunting and agri-tourism.
