Local 49 commends Administrative Law Judge Eric Lipman’s exhaustive review of the Sandpiper Pipeline Project. Judge Lipman ran a a fair and efficient public process where everyone had a chance to put their views on the record.
Hundreds of our members were proud to share their invaluable experiences as builders of our nations pipelines during the public comment period.
Quote from Jason George – Local 49 Special Projects Director on the need for Sandpiper:
“Northern Minnesota needs the thousands of family sustaining construction jobs; local governments need the tax revenue; local businesses need the economic boost; and we all need to get more oil off of our rail system and safely into pipelines – Minnesota needs to build the Sandpiper Pipeline.”
