5/3: Put Citizen Rights Before Mining Companies!

 

“Contested case” hearings provide a low-cost forum for citizens to provide evidence and testimony to regulators before a mining permit is issued. Now, for mining permits only, the MN Legislature seeks to deny majority of affected citizens the right to a contested case hearing.

Why This Matters
 
In this video from Water Action Day, Matt Norton of Save the Boundary Waters and Paula Maccabee of Water Legacy describe the devastating impacts that sulfide mining will have on the 3 major watershed of Minnesota and the terrible bills that the 2017 Minnesota Legislature is passing to give unfettered power to the mining interests and to lock citizens out of the environmental review process.
