Hearing On The Iron Range

Saturday, January 29th, 2011 at 10:39 am

State senators from the jobs and environment committees went the Hibbing Community College on Friday to hear concerns about environmental permitting. About 200 people were at the hearing.

Stakeholders from the mining industry, chambers of commerce, unions, and communities spoke in favor of speeding things up.

Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch told WDIO it was good to get out of St. Paul and bring the hearing up north and hear from the people on the ground.
