In the Rockies today, Colorado billionaire Phil Anschutz has a plan to sell wind-generated power to California, and he's planning a $6-billion, 1,000-turbine wind farm in Wyoming and a $3-billion, 725-mile power line needed to get the power to an existing transmission line to do just that.
The fact that California isn't in the market for renewable energy isn't stopping Anschutz's ambitious plan.
In Idaho, legislators heard a presentation on Monday from a Utah lawmaker on that state's mandate to get federal lands handed over to state control.
The proposal isn't a new one in Idaho, as the state Republican Party's platform supports the transfer of federal lands to the state, and Idaho legislators appeared interested in pursuing the matter after hearing Utah Rep. Ken Ivory's presentation.
And tonight in Helena, the documentary "FrackNation" will premiere at 7 p.m. at the Lewis & Clark Fairgrounds.
The event begins at 6 p.m. with a reception for one of the documentary's filmmakers, Phelim McAleer.
