RELEASE: Rep. Lislegard statement on Supreme Court ruling regarding PolyMet

Wednesday, April 28, 2021

SAINT PAUL, Minn. – Rep. Dave Lislegard (DFL – Aurora) issued the following statement in response to today’s Minnesota Supreme Court ruling regarding PolyMet:

“The Supreme Court ruling today was a positive step forward for the region and for our robust regulatory process. After repeated efforts to destroy this project, mining opponents were defeated on many fronts even as they claim victory. The supporters of this project will stand firm, upheld by the substantial scientific record as the agencies work through the remaining steps to reinstate all permits. I encourage PolyMet to continue all appropriate preparation to move toward construction.”
