Senators Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), along with Representatives Ann Kuster (D-NH) and Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH), sent a letter to Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz August 20, requesting an additional review of the new route for the proposed Northern Pass transmission line. The letter also asked for a public comment period on the new route for the line which will cross the U.S.-Canada border. The delegation also sent a letter to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack because the amended route crosses into the Connecticut Lakes Headwater Conservation Easement Deed.
