On March 21, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) released three orders approving compliance filings on regulations to build electric transmission lines. The first two decisions surrounded regional transmission organizations (RTOs), involved PJM Interconnection and Midwest Independent Transmission System (MISO), and were both approved by a vote of 3-2. The two votes against were cast by the two Republicans on FERC who said the Commission was imposing conditions. The third decision, which involved WestConnect and bilateral markets, was unanimously approved.
