The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has instituted a “flexibility” policy on enforcement of environmental regulations. Companies can request compliance waivers and delays, which the regulator says will be approved or rejected on a case-by-case basis. But of 227 requests made so far, only three have been rejected. The agency has also paused rule-making on its CleanCars initiative to regulate vehicle emissions, until after shelter-in-place orders are lifted. Status: Effective March 2020.
