PUC meeting tomorrow on Brookings routing

Today I was able to get into the PUC site, it’s been down for maintenance, and it’s been down, and I’ve not been able to get in for one reason or another, and what do I find but a PUC meeting scheduled for tomorrow on accepting the Brookings routing application as “complete” and addressing whether there will be a Citizens Advisory Task Force. I don’t have time to get into all the history blah blah but here’s some basics:

PUC Meeting Notice & MOES Briefing Papers

My response was to fire off a Petition to Interve, this time for NoCapX 2020 and U-CAN:

No CapX 2020 & U-CAN Intervention Petition

Check out MOES rationale for a “Focus Group” and not a Citizens Advisory Task Force.  The CATF procedure has been so perverted since the legislature changed the statute to assure that there were no more working and effective Task Forces, like the Goodhue County Advisory Task Force on nuclear waste and the Chisago Task Force on the Chisago Transmission Project the first time around (the 3rd time, it was so ineffective and improper, that’s part of why I’m so furious now).

Here’s a piece I did a while back:

Citizen Advisory Task Forces through time…

With that background, how does the MOES machinations sit with you?
