Proposed Bill could cancel TIP

The Subcommittee on Water and Power, within the House of Representatives’ Committee on Natural Resources, held a hearing Thursday on  H.R. 2915.  This bill would repeal Western’s borrowing authority that was granted by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.  The borrowing authority is placed into law as an amendment to the Hoover Power Plant Act of 1984, and is carried out by the Transmission Infrastructure Program office. To hear what the issues are, you can watch the hearing on the Natural Resources Committee website.
