Gazelka: Line 3 appeal is slowing down jobs when we need them the most

(ST. PAUL, MN) –  Majority Leader Paul Gazelka (R- East Gull Lake) released the following statement on the Walz administration to appeal the certificate of need that was approved by the Public Utilities Commission.

“Enbridge has dedicated the resources and time to create the safest replacement line that will also provide much needed jobs to benefit the community. They have demonstrated their ability to meet the highest expectations time and time again, only to have another layer of government delay the project. It’s bad enough Greater Minnesota is still shut down from COVID emergency orders, now Governor Walz is slowing down high paying jobs and safer energy for Minnesotans, at a time when we need them most.”
