WTIP presents a special mining conversation broadcast

FifthThurs_mining.mp3110.55 MB

Cook County is a long way from the Iron Range, so why do we reap the benefits of the taconite tax? If non-ferrous mining becomes a reality, who benefits from those taxes? What exactly is the mission of the IRRRB and after all is said and done, what does it mean to be a miner?

Join WTIP’s Jay Andersen for a special Fifth Thursday Community Conversation – “Mining the Mining Connection in Cook County.”

To better understand mining and its relationship to Cook County, we’ll be talking with District 3A Representative David Dill and Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Commissioner Tony Sertich.

“Mining the Mining Connection in Cook County.” Fifth Thursday Community Conversation. Only on WTIP North Shore Community Radio.
