The Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma recently joined a growing list of government entities to pass resolutions against the construction of a $2 billion, 700-mile, high-voltage transmission line through Oklahoma and Arkansas to Tennessee.

Janelle Fullbright, deputy speaker of the of the Cherokee Nation Tribal Council, sponsored a resolution that was passed Tuesday “opposing the establishment of an energy line route by the Plains & Eastern Clean Line in Sequoyah County, Oklahoma located within the Cherokee Nation jurisdictional area.”

The Plains & Eastern Clean Line project is proposed to deliver 3,500 megawatts of wind energy from the Oklahoma Panhandle region to utilities and customers in Tennessee, Arkansas, and other markets in the Mid-South and Southeast. A 500-megawatt substation has been added to the plan.
