A North Country representative is proposing legislation that would require the Northern Pass Transmission lines to be buried.
NHPR’s Chris Jensen reports.
Rep. Larry Rappaport of Colebrook is introducing legislation he says could end the fight over the transmission towers proposed by Northern Pass.
Rappaport says his bill would require any utility company undertaking an “elective” project to bury the transmission lines.
“Elective” means the project isn’t needed to improve the overall reliability of the power grid.
