Judge Strikes Down Energy Law

Posted: Updated:

North Dakota utilities scored a win today, according to Attorney General Wayne Stehenjem. A federal judge struck down a 2007 Minnesota Law that banned regulating energy from outside of the state, saying it violated the U.S. Constitution.

The law prevented Minnesota Utilities from building new coal power plants or importing energy generated by coal from North Dakota utilities. Minnesota's governor says the state will appeal the ruling.
