    When a Clean Line Energy representative was asked how she felt about infringing on the rights of land owners for their project, she stated, “We are a commodity, like corn or beans or cattle.” My reply was that I am not infringing on her rights to provide food for her. There was no reply. Aerial spraying, drainage tile, land values, esthetics, etc. will be negatively affected by this project so that people at least one state away can have more electricity. What has happened to the rights of the individual?
