WMC Testifies in Support of Enbridge Line 5 Relocation Project, Urges Members to Submit Comments in Support of Project

This week WMC Director of Environmental and Energy Policy Craig Summerfield, delivered remarks to the DNR in support of the proposed relocation of the Enbridge Line 5 pipeline in northern Wisconsin. Wisconsin’s business community depends on access to affordable and reliable energy, and maintaining energy infrastructure like Line 5 is a key component of that. The project is expected to provide 700 family-sustaining construction jobs and add $135 million in direct and indirect economic activity.

The Wisconsin DNR is currently accepting written public comment on its draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) until Friday, March 18. Approval of a final EIS is a necessary step to move the project forward.
