The article reports on the development of ways for power lines and transmission pipelines in the Western States. There is slow pace in the development of the nation's transmission infrastructure because of the difficulty in securing the rights of way for the power lines and pipelines. Fortunately, the Energy Policy Act of 2005 provides two provisions allowing utility companies to remove roadblocks which make it easier to construct transmission routes. Federal agencies conducted an environmental review led by the Bureau of Land Management and Department of Energy.
