Could you read and thoroughly analyze a 2,169 page technical document in 90 days?

No? Well, you're not alone. Most of us would need more time.

So why are State and Federal regulators giving the public only 90 days to read PolyMet's revised 2,169-page open pit copper-sulfide mine plan, analyze it, and prepare their comments? Its clear that both experts and citizens need more time to digest the plan and come to their own conclusions.

     Speak Up: Request a Longer Public Comment Period for
     PolyMet's Open Pit Copper-Sulfide Mine Plan

Public hearings right away in January are also a problem. If public meetings were scheduled later in the comment period, it would also give citizens a better chance to share their opinions about PolyMet's sulfide mine plan after we've all had time to read and review the complex document. You can ask for a better comment process.*

     Please Request an Extension of PolyMet's Public Comment Period
     from 90 to 180 Days and an Additional Public Meeting.
