November 2017

Thank you. In response to your comments on the PolyMet Land Exchange Rip-Off Bill (HR 3115), Congressman Keith Ellison, U.S. Representative from Minnesota’s 5th district, has sent a statement clearly opposing the bill: 

"The Superior National Forest Land Exchange Act of 2017 (H.R. 3115) would trade land in Minnesota's Superior National Forest to a mining company. The EPA has described the thousands of acres of wetlands in the Superior National Forest as an Aquatic Resource of National Importance. This bill has been referred to the House Natural Resources Committee, of which I am not a member. As a strong advocate for wilderness and our natural resources, I oppose this bill. I will be sure to keep your views in mind as this bill moves through Congress.
