The court today rejected almost all of the claims made by opponents and confirmed that the vast majority of the information that is part of the Line 3 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is complete and supports permit applications.
The court ruled that additional information be added to the 13,500 page EIS. This should be the last step of what is already the most thorough review of a pipeline in Minnesota’s history. Today’s ruling should not stop any of the permit applications. It is important to keep this process moving forward to make sure we are able to replace aging energy infrastructure to protect jobs and the environment.
