"This week’s North Dakota leak would rank in the Top 10 largest U.S. onshore oil spills since 2010. In that year, an Enbridge pipeline ruptured in southwestern Michigan, spilling 834,000 gallons of Canadian crude. Enbridge’s last major spill in Minnesota was in 2002 when Line 3 failed near Cohasset, releasing 252,000 gallons of oil."

Gov. Tim Walz and Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan have decided to continue the state's legal challenge against the Line 3 tar sands pipeline, which would cross northern Minnesota.
This legal appeal was started by Gov. Dayton's Department of Commerce, based on the premise that the Public Utilities Commission approved the pipeline illegally.
The Walz administration filed for the appeal.
