The St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Department announced it will conduct overtime speed enforcement beginning on December 1, continuing through the end of February 2023.

American Electric Power said last year that it plans to spend $23.3 billion between 2022 and 2026 on transmission and distribution. But there’s been growing concern at the state and federal level that too much of it is occurring without enough transparency and oversight to ensure transmission owners are appropriately planning for new technology, considering more cost-effective regional approaches or alternate solutions and not ripping off their ratepayers.
