Missouri Farm Bureau President Blake Hurst made the following statement regarding the Supreme Court of Missouri’s denial of transfer of a case regarding the Grain Belt Express:

The Supreme Court is wrong to refuse to hear Missouri Farm Bureau’s case defending property rights against abuse. Missourians should never be forced to give up their land to an energy conglomerate posing as a utility, but without the responsibility. We will push strongly for the state legislature to right this wrong and pass a law to ensure these abuses stop right here.
