North Texas Rancher's Power Line Battle Gains Attention

This week, the Public Utility Commission of Texas will consider a complaint that Johnny Vinson, an 82-year-old rancher, lodged against Oncor, the state’s largest transmission operator. The case concerns this question: After landowners sign off on a power line routes, can a transmission company install it somewhere else?
