Tell Governor Walz to continue the Dept. of Commerce appeal of Line 3

 

For two years, the state Department of Commerce has been appealing the Public Utilities Commission's decision to give the pipeline a Certificate of Need. The Department has rightly argued that Enbridge failed to prove that the pipeline is needed under law. For technical reasons, the DOC must refile this appeal by Wed., August 19. It is critical that this appeal not be dropped.
