MADISON, Wis. (WHBL) - State Senator Glenn Grothman of West Bend says he’ll vote in favor of mining legislation in committee today, but there’s still work to be done. Grothman is a member of the Forestry Development and Mining Committee which was scheduled to convene at 10 a.m. Grothman says he’ll vote to send the legislation to the Senate floor but he says he still needs more assurances from the DNR that there won’t be any problems in northern Wisconsin. The legislation could bring an iron ore mine and hundreds of jobs to the area. Grothman, speaking from Madison on Sheboygan's Morning News, said, "We've got to make sure that there are no negative environmental impacts or undue impacts on the people of that area."
