Shutdown day 7: Special Master schedule

Posted at 2:19 PM on July 6, 2011 by Catharine Richert (0 Comments)

Special Master Kathleen Blatz, the retired Minnesota Supreme Court justice who was appointed by Ramsey County District Court Judge Kathleen Gearin to make recommendations on continuing services, has hearings schedule for Thursday, July 7.

You can access the entire list here.

Among the groups making their case to Blatz is PolyMet Mining, a Canadian company that's trying to open a copper mine near Babbitt. MPR's Stephanie Hemphill tells me that company is worried the shutdown could slow the completion of its environmental impact statement, a process conducted by the now-shuttered Department of Natural Resources.
