Minnesota Environmental Review Revisions Must Have a Strong EJ Lens

In order to put environmental justice on the forefront of any revisions planned for the Minnesota Environmental Assessment Worksheets (EAW) and other environmental review documents, CEED submitted comments to the Environmental Quality Board. As they plan for their revisions, we are urging them to (1) Integrate A Robust Environmental Justice Analysis Procedure by Incorporating the EPA’s Draft “Technical Guidance For Assessing Environmental Justice In Regulatory Analysis”; (2) Develop a Meaningful Process for Environmental Justice Communities’ Engagement in Rule-making and the Environmental Review Process; (3) Utilize up-to-date data; and (4) Revise pollution thresholds in the context of climate change.
