New York's Public Service Commission has approved the Champlain Hudson Power Express, a plan to build an 330-mile power line from Quebec to Queens that  would be placed mostly under Lake Champlain and the Hudson River.

A key lawmaker on energy policy says a company planning to run a transmission line to send New York City lower-cost Canadian electricity will also explore sharing that line with upstate utilities.

Meanwhile, western New York Republicans are criticizing the plan for the line under Lake Champlain and the Hudson River, saying upstate energy production should be expanded before relying on Canadian power.
