The advisory board of the American Lung Association of West Virginia has voted to oppose the PATH power line, which is slated to cross a number of WV counties, including Calhoun.

In a letter to the state Public Service Commission, the board urged the PSC to reject the line because its construction would serve to continue the nation's reliance on coal-fired power plants.

The board said it is concerned for those living downwind from such power stations who suffer from respiratory problems.

Allegheny Energy and partner American Electric Power are proposing to build the 765-kilovolt high-line project, or PATH, from AEP's John Amos plant in Putnam County to Maryland.
