It’s this Wednesday and Thursday, April 15 and 16. The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission is holding hearings on the CapX2020 Certificate of Need, and you need to be there to represent your interests! Hearings start at 9:30. Click HERE for exact location and other details, and HERE and HERE for more background information. The CapX2020 project is just the proverbial foot in the door, the camel’s nose in the tent, the slippery slope… you get the idea. Stop this thing while you have a chance. See you in St. Paul on Wednesday and Thursday!
Please note that the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission will hear oral arguments whether to reopen the record on the CapX2020 Certificate of Need case on April 15, not April 14 as previously posted. See that post (now updated with the correct date) for details, and please show up if at all possible.
