Alta premier says changes coming to bill proposing energy regulatory duties split

Premier Ed Stelmach says changes are coming to proposed legislation that many Alberta landowners say would restrict their participation in energy hearings.

Stelmach told a meeting of rural municipal leaders that his government will amend Bill 46 next week to change some wording on who would qualify to take part in such hearings.
