A key Republican legislator is ripping the Iowa Utilities Board decision to approve the Summit Carbon Solutions pipeline project. Representative Bobby Kaufmann of Wilton says the ruling sets a dangerous precedent.

Kaufmann accuses the board of capitulating to pressure from influential Republican donor Bruce Rastetter, who owns Summit.

Kaufmann, along with a majority of Iowa House members, have passed legislation in previous years that would have set new requirements for the proposed pipeline, but those bills were never considered in the Iowa Senate. Kaufmann predicts Tuesday’s Iowa Utilities Board decision will be a catalyst for action.
