House votes to speed up permitting

Email

ST. PAUL -- Minnesota representatives voted Thursday night to speed up the state environmental permitting process in an attempt to attract more business and help existing businesses to expand.

On an 82-42 vote, the House decided to establish a 150-day goal for the Department of Natural Resources and Pollution Control Agency to issue permits. Those permits are needed for businesses to take actions such as digging a well and discharging waste.
