When I want to use an appliance in my home that requires electricity or when I want lighting in a room I just flip a switch. When my electrical power is compromised — by a storm, for example — I conveniently call Minnesota Power and I am courteously informed that a crew will be...

Minnesota legislators' oil safety provisions avoid pipelines
ST. PAUL — Minnesota lawmakers are on the verge of considering a bill that would help prevent oil train disasters and respond better if they occur, but the bill includes nothing about pipeline safety. That does not set well with Gov. Mark Dayton and House Transportation Finance...
