MEPA ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEWS ARE A DEAD END STREET

I have hesitated to share my feelings on this as I know it will bend a lot of people out of shape but "environmental review/ER" of the MEPA (Minnesota Environmental Policy Act) not to be confused with NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) is a dead end street.  I have been left out of many attempts to stop damaging actions on the state level as I urge people/groups to not go down this road.  To the best of my knowledge, nothing has ever been won by us through legal lawsuits on ER. If I am wrong, please inform me of what we have won with MEPA ER. To many professional environmental groups, the MEPA is the "holy grail" and if you bad mouth it, you will be shunned by many environmentalists as I have.  I have been involved in a number of legislative struggles over the past 25 years and since the passage of the MEPA I have witnessed numerous MN legislators chip away every year at MEPA.....from weakening restrictions on numerous issues from hog feedlots to ethanol plant
