At a press conference this morning, Senator George Maziarz (R-C, Newfane) joined fellow State Senators, union members, power generators and business groups in order to draw attention to the negative impacts of a proposed underwater transmission line from Canada and announce legislation prohibiting the use of eminent domain by an electric corporation (or affiliate) that seeks to build a transmission line that originates outside of the United States to an ending point within the United States.
