State regulators vote to move Enbridge pipeline project forward


November 20, 2018

The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (PUC) also on Monday unanimously agreed that Enbridge had met several conditions it imposed when it unanimously approved the $2.6 billion pipeline in June. The move came despite concerns over the project's insurance coverage by the Minnesota Department of Commerce and pipeline opponents.
