Minnesota Bills Aim to Create Jobs, Lure Businesses

Friday, 25 Feb 2011 01:18 PM

Republicans in the Minnesota Senate pushed through several initiatives Thursday to streamline regulations in order to add jobs and attract business to the state, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported Friday. State Sen. Bill Ingebrigtsen sponsored measures that make it easier and faster to get state permits for new and expanding businesses so they could add jobs.

"You can rest assured, we will be cutting here and there to make this work,'' he said.

Provisions in the measure would allow developers appealing permit denials to skip lower courts and go straight to state court of appeal. In addition, they would be able to draft their own environmental review under the measure.

The House passed similar proposals, which now must be reconciled with the Senate version before heading to Gov. Mark Dayton’s desk for him to sign.
