One-Call Law Proposed Changes Stakeholder Meetings

The Office of Pipeline Safety (MNOPS) has received approval to move forward with proposed changes to Minnesota’s One-Call Law (Minnesota Statute 216D). These proposed changes are in response to statewide issues and an increase in complaints received in 2019.

We made additional revisions to our proposed statutory changes after feedback from recent meetings. You can view those changes here.  

MNOPS values the feedback it has already received on these changes and looks forward to continued conversations with stakeholders as we work through this process.
