Two Native American tribes in northern Minnesota are asking state regulators to stop the imminent construction of Enbridge Energy's Line 3 crude oil pipeline replacement project.

They say it increases the risk of coronavirus infections spreading. The Red Lake and White Earth Bands of Chippewa filed a motion for an expedited stay of the project with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission late Wednesday.
