Iron Ore Alliance hosts legislative reception
The Iron Ore Alliance held a reception with Minnesota legislators on February 5 in Saint Paul. The event included discussions between U. S. Steel, the United Steelworkers, and legislators about issues important to iron mining, including the need to revise Minnesota’s sulfate standard to protect wild rice, and the importance of Buy American legislation. 2015 will likely be a critical year for iron mining in Minnesota. We are grateful for the legislators who attended our reception, and look forward to working together to support our important industry.
