Approximately 100 clergy and laypeople held a prayer gathering in the governor's office and presented gifts of wild rice.

Opponents say the project would threaten pristine waters in northern Minnesota and aggravate climate change.

Meanwhile, other lawmakers wrote to the Gov. Walz urging him to drop a legal challenge to the project that began during the administration of Gov. Mark Dayton.
