Bakk Statement on Enbridge Line 3 Certificate of Need

The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission approved a certificate of need for the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline yesterday. Senate DFL Caucus Leader Tom Bakk, DFL-Cook, released the following statement.

“I applaud the PUC on their thoughtful consideration of this infrastructure project. The certificate of need means this project can move forward in the official permitting process, which is an important step to ensure development projects like Enbridge can be built responsibly. I look forward to final approval and the Northland jobs that will bring.”
