CONCORD — There weren’t enough seats for the crowd that turned out for a public hearing Tuesday on a bill proposed by state Sen. Jeb Bradley that would allow electric utilities to pass on the costs of new projects to consumers.
The Supreme Court's decision regarding the Forest Society's lawsuit against Northern Pass is unfortunate in that it puts off until later a private property rights issue of extraordinary importance to New Hampshire landowners. In short, the Court punted.
Northern Pass wants to know who donated to the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests specifically to oppose its proposed 192-mile extra high-voltage powerline from Pittsburg to Deerfield, according to a memo posted Monday on the state Site Evaluation Committee website.
The NH Site Evaluation Committee denied an attempt by Northern Pass to muzzle the prefiled testimony of landowners submitted by the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, and relevant testimony submitted by the City of Concord.
