Statement from House DFL Leadership on Line 3 process

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

St. Paul, Minnesota — Speaker of the House Melissa Hortman and Majority Leader Ryan Winkler released the following statement on the continuation of the appeals process on the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline:

“This is a process that belongs in the executive and judicial branches of government, not in the legislature. Political interference and Republican finger-pointing will only make it more challenging to come to a final decision. We expect that this process will result in a fully-vetted and sound outcome.

“While the Line 3 project is under review, House DFLers will push to create quality jobs by investing in infrastructure, transportation, higher wages, and better benefits for Minnesotans.”
