PATH Opponents Hold Productive Discussions with Acting Governor Tomblin; Alternative One Resolution 58 Introduced

StopPATH WV has the scoop and the details.

Here’s the picture —

Needless to say, Gov. Tomblin was very interested to hear about all the details of Dominion’s Alternative One.  He thought it sounded like a very viable alternative to PATH.

Thank you to Delegates John Doyle and Tiffany Lawrence, also pictured, for showing such leadership on the PATH issue and arranging our meeting with the acting Governor.

We also had very productive discussions with a number of legislators who were anxious to support for Alternative One by urging the Public Service Commission to suspend consideration of PATH and to complete the construction of Alternative One by ordering the rebuilding of Allegheny’s Pruntytown to Mt. Storm transmission line.  With that rebuild completed, and with the already approved Mt. Storm to Doubs line, for 1/3 the cost of PATH, we would be free forever from the failing PATH boondoggle.

Twenty Delegates joined together on Wednesday to introduce House Concurrent Resolution 58 which gives all Delegates and Senators a chance to express their support for real solutions to our state’s transmission infrastructure problems, not pie in the sky money pits like PATH imposed by Ohio power companies to benefit the East Coast.

Here is a link to Resolution 58 as it was introduced Wednesday.  Contact your WV legislators and urge them to vote for House Concurrent Resolution 58 when it comes to the floor in the House, probably next week, and then in the WV Senate.  This is a concurrent resolution, so it will be presented to both the House and the Senate.
