Protest organizers are concerned that local rates will increase and they are happy with current relationships and rates with Missouri non-profit energy co-ops. They also express concern that the power will not benefit Missouri stakeholders as the line extends into Illinois.

The protest will run from 10:00 a.m until 1:00 p.m. at 200 Madison Street in Jefferson City.
