Supporting sensible regulations maintaining a clean environment and healthy business climate

Support sensible regulations that will allow Minnesota to maintain a clean environment and healthy business climate to foster economic growth.

The Minnesota business community saw a number of successes at the 2019 Legislature including:
•    Securing funding for the Pollution Control Agency and Department of Natural Resources to defend permit approvals in court
•    Continued streamlining of environmental review and permitting processes
•    Requiring science-based peer review of new or revised state water quality standards
•    Forging a compromise on using flame retardants in a variety of products and applications
•    Stopping the re-establishment of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency Citizens Board
•    Blocking the establishment of a carpet stewardship program
