ELPC's Learner discusses Wis. vote on Enbridge pipeline expansion

Following Dane County, Wisconsin's vote to require Enbridge Corp. to take out $125 million in insurance against a possible spill for its proposed pipeline expansion of Line 61, how could community-based interception affect the future of pipeline projects nationwide? During today's OnPoint, Howard Learner, executive director of the Environmental Law & Policy Center, explains why he believes Dane County has the legal authority to require Enbridge to take out insurance. He also talks about how this case could tee up future community-based action.
