Senate approves bill to bypass PUC, construct northern Minnesota oil pipeline

The Minnesota Senate has voted 35-32 to pass a bill that would kick-start construction of Enbridge Energy’s proposed replacements of its aging Line 3 crude oil pipeline across northern Minnesota.

The House passed the legislation Monday, but the Senate on Wednesday added a two-word amendment that the House must concur with before sending the bill to Gov. Mark Dayton, who has promised to veto it.
