MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA) today expressed disappointment following the Minnesota Court of Appeals decision regarding the replacement of Line 3. In response, Chris Ventura, Midwest Executive Director, for CEA made the following statement:
“We are disappointed that the Minnesota Court of Appeals invalidated the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission’s final environmental impact statement – despite rejecting the majority of the baseless claims made by the opponents – in what has become the longest, and most thorough, study of a pipeline in Minnesota’s history.
“Despite claims otherwise, every day, families and businesses across Minnesota depend on the affordable and reliable supplies of energy delivered by Line 3.
“Because the environmental impact statement relies on interagency cooperation across state government – we call on the Walz Administration to direct his agencies to prioritize the additional information ordered by the court. It is time to stop playing games and modernize Minnesota’s energy infrastructure. It’s time for someone to start supporting hard-working Minnesota families.”
