At its meeting of Thursday, September 11, the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (PUC) took actions that will change, and lengthen, the Sandpiper Pipeline review process. By a 3-2 vote, following party lines, the PUC voted to:

• Separate the Certificate of Need process from the Route Permit process (This decision reverses a decision made earlier this year where the PUC voted to run the two processes together)

• Hold the Route proceedings in abeyance (inactive) until a decision on the Certificate of Need has been made.

• Authorize environmental review of the six route system alternatives identified by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (as having fewer potential environmental effects than Sandpiper) by the Minnesota Department of Commerce’s Energy Environmental Review and Analysis staff.
