March 10 Senate hearing time moved to 5 p.m.

Wednesday’s hearing about sulfide mining, including legislation that seeks to strengthen Minnesota’s “damage deposit” regulations, has been bumped up an hour. The hearing is now scheduled to start at 5 p.m. It will also feature testimony from the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy about the flaws in the PolyMet proposal that they have identified.

Please attend this important hearing to show your support. Get there early, at least an hour, if you want to get into the room, but there should be a lively crowd watching the proceedings in overflow spaces that will be provided.

Wear a blue shirt and look for folks handing out “Protect Clean Water” stickers!
