"Capitol Update" piece on an amendment to energy legislation recently passed by the U.S. Senate that has state officials worried about losing control over electric transmission lines. The amendment expands the authority of the U.S. Department of Energy to designate "national interest electricity transmission corridors" in which federal regulators preempt the state regulators. Kurt Adams, chairman of the Maine Public Utilities Commission, said if the amendment becomes law that state could lose any control over where a new power plant is located and the transmission lines associated with it.
