Letter: Nolan fights for mining

As a proud member of the United Steel Workers and a Marine Corps Veteran I'm always trying to find ways to get results. That's why I am so pleased we have U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan, D-Crosby, representing the Iron Range. Nolan led a bipartisan tour of the Iron Range with key decision makers in Congress so that they could learn about the Range, our mining economy, and the senseless mining moratorium.

Congressman Nolan and I agree that where and if a mine operates should always be based on science and facts. As outdoorsmen, we both know how important our environment is and wouldn't support a project that couldn't be done safely and responsibly. It is time we got back to the facts when making important decisions about mining and I am proud Congressman Nolan is finding ways to get the job done.
