ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the tension rising between the residents and the interstate in Montana due to the plan of electricity firm NorthWestern Energy to build the Mountain States Transmission Intertie (MSTI). It cites that the construction of the electrical transmission mainline affects rivers and private properties in Beaverhead and Jefferson counties. However, the firm notes improvements in the state related to the line such as job creation, development of wind resources, and tax revenue.
