Gov. Tim Walz says his new administration will be "actively engaged" on contentious natural resources issues, including the Enbridge Energy's plan to replace its aging Line 3 oil pipeline across northern Minnesota.

Speaking to reporters Friday at an annual Department of Natural Resources conference, Walz said he has asked his team to review the lawsuit that was filed by the outgoing Dayton administration challenging the decision by the independent Public Utilities Commission to approve the project.
