Walz: Decision on Proceeding with Line 3 Lawsuit will be His

January 11, 2019 02:26 PM

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) - Gov. Tim Walz says his new administration will be "actively engaged" on contentious natural resources issues, including the Enbridge Energy's plan to replace its aging Line 3 oil pipeline across northern Minnesota.
    
Speaking to reporters Friday at an annual Department of Natural Resources conference, Walz said he has asked his team to review the lawsuit that was filed by the outgoing Dayton administration challenging the decision by the independent Public Utilities Commission to approve the project.
    
Walz says he wants to understand why Dayton's Commerce Department felt the process was insufficient and that it needed to turn to the courts. The governor says the decision whether to proceed with the case will stop with him, but it will be informed by all the stakeholders involved.
