Judge allows $10 SunZia transmission line to proceed


Years too late.

It’s what a U.S. District judge has ruled in dismissing legal claims by Native American tribes and environmentalists who tried to stop construction of the $10 billion energy transmission line to carry wind powered electricity from New Mexico to California.

Judge Jennifer Zipps said the opponents were not only too late in their challenge but also ruled against their requests to a preliminary injunction. She determined the Bureau of Land Management had fulfilled its obligations to identify historic sites along the route of the SunZia transmission line, reported the Associated Press.
