New power lines cost customers

Thomas Content reports at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"A federal appeals court ruling in Chicago sided for the most part with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Indiana-based operator and planner of the Midwest power grid.  
"At issue is a cost-sharing plan that was approved by FERC to pay for an array of new power lines."
