Environmental group brings back anti-mining bill TV ad

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - An environmental group has brought back a TV ad it ran a year ago, calling on state lawmakers to kill a plan to relax regulations on new mines in Wisconsin.

The League of Conservation Voters says the ad is running statewide. It says the bill would expose families to deadly chemicals.

The ad is the same one that ran during last year’s debate on mining. Gogebic Taconite said at the time that it was nothing but fear-mongering.

Lawmakers are trying to for a second time to get Gogebic to open a new iron ore mine in Ashland and Iron counties.

Majority Republicans say it would create thousands of jobs at the mine site and elsewhere in Wisconsin. Democrats say it eases up on environmental protections. The Bad River Indian tribe said the some of the mine’s pollution would go downstream and hurt the tribe’s reservation near Ashland.

Two legislative committees have endorsed the new package, which includes 11 new amendments aimed mainly at preserving environmental protections.

Democrats say the changes don’t go far enough, and none of their members voted for the bill in their respective committees.
