I Me Mine...Gogebic Taconite Style

There are a number of very good articles out today by Wisconsin authors about yesterday's committee hearing which passed the controversial mining bill. The Siren has linked them below. But all you really need to know about the bill is in the video below by the tenacious Arthur222.

If the Siren had written a bill which would bring hundreds of jobs to Wisconsin, increased revenue for the state and directed a great big company to move a big facility to Northern Wisconsin her name would be all over it. Flocks of legislators would sign on as co-sponsors and we'd host a public end-zone dance-off.

So it's more than weird that no one and we mean NO ONE wants to claim ownership of the massive Gogebic Taconite iron mine bill. Word is the bill is unlikely to pass the Assembly (not taking bets on that) and even less so in the Senate.
