Dayton signs bill speeding permits
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota's environmental permitting process soon will speed up, with a goal of producing more jobs.
Gov. Mark Dayton signed a permit speed-up bill Thursday, following up on an earlier executive order he wrote to do many of the same things.
"We're sending a signal that we want your projects done quicker," Rep. Dan Fabian, R-Roseau, said about the new law's message to business. "And we want to save you money in the process, because time is money."
