County Commissioners from Chariton, Monroe, Ralls, and Randolph County came on KWIXland This Morning to express concerns over Invenergy’s planned construction of the Grain Belt Express transmision line. Monroe County Commissioner Marilyn O’Bannon wondered if the finances are there….

Randolph County Presiding Commissioner John Truesdell isn’t convinced the company can finish a project like this…..

O’Bannon is aware of landowners that are going through the condemnation process…
