Gov. Tim Walz said Tuesday that his administration will keep pursuing an appeal of an independent regulatory commission's approval of Enbridge Energy's plan to replace its aging Line 3 crude oil pipeline across in northern Minnesota, siding with environmental and tribal groups in his biggest and most controversial decision since becoming governor last month.
Fresh off approval by Minnesota regulators, officials with Enbridge Energy said Friday they're on track to finish construction and put the company's disputed Line 3 replacement crude oil pipeline into service in the second half of next year, assuming all goes well for them.
