Looser restrictions on coal power vetoed by Dayton
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton has vetoed legislation that would have allowed more coal power in Minnesota.
Dayton, a Democrat, rejected the bill on Friday, saying it was "unwise and unnecessary."
He says it goes against Minnesota's path toward a "sustainable, clean and safe energy future."
Republican Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch (kohk) says Dayton's veto compounds the state's economic problems and discourages companies from hiring people in the state.
