On Wednesday, Enbridge refused to provide a minimum of $900 million in liability insurance or sign any binding agreement to protect the state’s taxpayers from a catastrophic Line 5 oil pipeline failure in the Great Lakes.

Enbridge’s history of spills and misrepresentations requires much stronger action from the governor on Line 5 than we have seen to date.
