Davids signs on to bill requiring EIS for tire plants


Fri, Mar 26th, 2004
Posted in Features

On Monday, March 22, Rep. Greg Davids signed on to a bill authored by DFL Rep. Margaret Anderson-Kelliher that would require an environmental impact statement be prepared for any tire burning facility that uses fluidized bed boiler system technology. To date there is no author of the bill in the Minnesota senate.

Davids said that the bill is too late to make it into this legislative session and will have no retroactive effect on the proposed Heartland plant in Preston.

I dont want to see any city in the area go through what Preston has, Davids said as reason for supporting the measure.

Mayor David Pechulis of Preston has been supportive of the measure, corresponding with Anderson-Kelliher about Heartland .

Pechulis urged Davids to work with Anderson-Kelliher to get the bill heard in committee this legislative session.

This will really show the sincerity level of Greg Davids in seeing that the bill gets heard this year, Pechulis said.

April 1 hearing

On Thursday, April 1, Judge Joseph Wieners will hear a motion brought by attorneys for Southeast Minnesotans for Environmental Protection who have sued the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency for not requiring an Environmental Impact Statement on the Heartland project. On February 17, Wieners sent the matter back to the MPCA for additional consideration.

The hearing on Thursday will ask Wieners to rule as to whether any permits issued to Heartland to date are valid. The implications of this are significant.

By state statute, the city of Preston cannot issue a conditional use permit and subsequent building permits until after the regulatory agency has acted. Wieners could find that city permits are invalid given the fact that he has sent back the MPCA ruling on Heartland.

This in turn could affect the pending suit in federal court brought by Maust against the city for not issuing the developer a building permit for Heartland.

The hearing in Olmsted District Court is scheduled for 3:00 p.m.

DFL Ethics Inquiry

On Friday, March 12, House Minority Leader Matt Entenza announced that the DFL Caucus would conduct an internal inquiry into whether ethics charges should be brought against Davids.
