Does 3M Run Minnesota Health Agency?

Tuesday, December 6, 2005
 

A legislative hearing last week revealed that 3M managers called the shots during a meeting at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA). When state scientists laid out plans to study Scotchgard chemical water contamination, 3M reps told them not to bother – and MPCA bosses sat by and said nothing. The agency is run by former 3M manager Sheryl Corrigan. Last week marked the second hearing on 3M pollution that Corrigan refused to attend, sending her deputy to take the heat from frustrated senators.
