Please mark your calendars to attend the 30 March EQB board meeting at which
time it is expected that the board will make a decision regarding how to
proceed with Minnesota Power's request for an exemption from the state's
Power Plant Siting Act in order to receive a construction permit for the 12
miles of transmission and substation upgrade between Duluth and the St.
Louis River (the MN part of the proposed 260-mile 345 kV line that northern
Wisconsin residents oppose). Regards, Ann

RE: Arrowhead Project
MEQB Docket No. MP-HVTL-EA-1-99
OAH Docket No. 9-2901-12620-2
TO: Parties of Record
FROM: Bob Cupit, 651-296-2096
As you are aware, the EQB was scheduled to again take up the ALJ's
certified motion at the March 16, 2000 regular EQB meeting.
A recent request from the Governor's office for attendance by most EQB
member Commissioners at a function on March 16 has made it necessary to
reschedule the regular EQB meeting. It has been rescheduled on the
morning of March 30, 2000. We will send out a followup notice regarding
deadlines for submittal of written materials for the EQB meeting. The
filing date will not be before March 23.
