The Minnesota Department of Commerce will appeal the approval of Enbridge's controversial new oil pipeline across the northern part of the state. This part of Line 3 was built in Wisconsin.

The Minnesota Department of Commerce will appeal the approval of Enbridge's controversial new oil pipeline across the northern part of the state.

The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (PUC) approved Line 3 for a second time in February, and Wednesday is the deadline to challenge the decision before the Minnesota Court of Appeals. The Commerce Department said late Tuesday it would appeal - as it did after the PUC first approved in June 2018 the pipeline, a replacement for the deteriorating Line 3.

The first appeal was under former Gov. Mark Dayton. This appeal is the first under Gov. Tim Walz's administration.
