    Of course ONLY a utility would have enough political suck to get those people off their land.

    30 years of "open and notorious" squatting typrically gives the swatters the RIGHT to continue to squat and even to get legal title to the land.

    But in the case of a utility wanting your land?

    No title however unclouded is enough to save your land from public condemnation.

    Editec, please re-read the article. It is FERC that is pushing the regs, even though the Utility states it does not care. In this case, a heartless and mindless beurocrat is creating a problem where there is none.

    ..."FERC's role is to ensure that the licensee is following the terms of the license, and approve shoreline management plans. It is the responsibility of the licensee to carry out the terms and conditions of the license, including shoreline management plan."

    It's obvious that Union Electric Co., now Ameren, seriously fucked up.
