RELEASE: Statement from Chair Fabian on the PUC Line 3 Decision

Thursday, March 15, 2018

ST. PAUL, MN—Rep. Dan Fabian, R-Roseau, Chair of the House Environment and Natural Resources Policy & Finance Committee issued the following statement regarding today's decision by the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) to accept the final environmental impact statement (EIS) for the Enbridge Line 3 replacement pipeline.

"After painstaking delays, extended deadlines, and other regulatory hurdles, it's refreshing that the Public Utilities Commission has allowed the Line 3 pipeline project to take a small step forward by accepting the final environmental impact statement. This project will protect our environment, grow good-paying jobs, and generate billions in economic growth for communities across northern Minnesota; we hope regulatory agencies will allow this project to continue through Minnesota's stringent review processes as quickly as possible, without additional unnecessary delays or roadblocks."
