When has a state utility agency, i.e., Minnesota’s PUC or Wisconsin’s PSC, ever been presented with a transmission project proposal it didn’t like and approve??? Oh well, facts don’t matter. Found in the inbox from the Department of Energy:

DOE is now seeking public comment and feedback on the proposed CITAP Program via a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.

It’s “only” 123 pages long…

Comments are due a little more than 45 days from now, as they’re due 45 days from publication, which will be soon. To comment:

Here it is – as Jack Smith strongly suggests, READ IT!


  1. Conspiracy to Defraud the United States 18 U.S.C. 371
  2. Conspiracy to Obstruct an Official Proceeding – 18 U.S.C. 1512(k)
  3. Obstruction of, and Attempt to Obstruct, an Official Proceeding – 18 U.S.C. 1512(c)(2), 2)
  4. Conspiracy Against Rights – 18 U.S.C. 241

Now, can we please see indictments of co-conspirators 1-6?

And about an hour before this indictment dropped, Alan found this note on his van — I wonder if this guy will read the indictment, all 45 (!) pages of it?!?!
