Open Forum: Law enhances job creation

Posted: March 11, 2011 - 6:30pm

 On behalf of the 2,300 members of the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce and businesses across Minnesota, we extend our appreciation to Sen. Paul Gazelka for co-authoring a bill to expedite the environmental permitting and review process in Minnesota while protecting the public health and environment and natural resources of the state.

Thanks to his efforts, H.F. 1 will implement greater efficiencies and much needed practical changes to the permitting and review process. We also support Gov. Dayton for signing this important piece of bipartisan supported legislation.

Accelerating and simplifying the environmental review and permitting process in Minnesota will enhance job creation and economic development throughout the state.

Thank you, Sen. Gazelka.

David Olson
