HERMANTOWN, MN – Today, Congressman Pete Stauber (MN-08) issued the following statement after the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and Minnesota Pollution Control Agency issued state permits necessary for construction on the Line 3 replacement project.

“Today’s announcement is long-awaited and welcomed news for thousands of Minnesotans.
