IPPNY strongly supports A.10530 (Morelle)/S.7391 (Maziarz). This bill would limit the use of eminent domain only to activities that achieve a public use, benefit or purpose that maximizes benefits to New York State. The legislation would prevent certain electric corporations from having the power of eminent domain: (1) those that seek, either through themselves or through one or more affiliated interests, to build or expand transmission lines connecting a location outside the territorial limits of the United States to a location within New York State and (2) those that seek, either through themselves or through one or more affiliated interests, to build or expand an electric generating facility outside the United States and to interconnect it to a location within the New York State.
On behalf of the Independent Power Producers of New York, Inc., a trade association representing companies involved in the development of electric generating facilities, the generation, sale and marketing of electric power, and the transmission of natural gas in the State of New York, we are here to represent the interest of our Members in voicing our opposition to this proposed project. IPPNY Member companies produce more than 75 percent of the state's electric power, and are large employers with more than 10,000 individuals and taxpayers working to support and bolster the New York State economy.
