Appelwick, Teresa. (2024, April) [LinkedIn Post]

It may be the most hotly discussed topic on the Iron Range, and it certainly has taken center stage at the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce and Minnesota Capitol this year: permitting reform.

Jennifer Byers with the Minnesota Chamber joined us at the Minnesota Discovery Center Mineland Reclamation Building on Tuesday to present the Foundation’s report on the the environmental permitting process in Minnesota and how it stacks up to other states.

The Chamber has made strides in this conversation. This report is a great foundation on which to make progress for our shared industry interests. We look forward to working with our agency partners in making Minnesota a competitive place to permit - while maintaining high standards.
