Gov. Mark Dayton’s administration concluded the state does not need an extra health impact assessment of the PolyMet mining project.
In a joint memo released Monday, Dayton’s health, pollution control and natural resources commissioners told the governor that a health study would be duplicative, confusing and could delay decision making.
A statement from the governor’s office said: “Gov. Dayton agrees with their assessment.”
