LETTER: Governors seek substantive partnership in Section 368 energy corridor designation process


Western Governors sent a letter on May 17, 2016, to Bureau of Land Management Director Neil Kornze and U.S. Forest Service Chief Thomas Tidwell to inquire about energy corridor designations mandated by Section 368 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005. The Governors requested answers to their questions and a "substantive partnership" in the Section 368 energy corridor designation process. The letter noted, "Establishing an energy transmission infrastructure system that facilitates the development of necessary infrastructure – while maintaining wildlife, natural resources and environmental protection – represents a key energy policy priority for Western Governors." Read, download the Letter
