Essar still owes Iron Range contractors millions
Essar Steel Minnesota still owes Iron Range contractors millions of dollars.
“There is a nasty little story going on here,” said Rep. Tom Anzelc, DFL chair of the Minnesota Legislature’s Iron Range delegation. “The contractors have not been paid in full.”
On Nov. 30, Gov. Mark Dayton gave Essar an ultimatum to finally pay its vendors by Dec. 2 or he would call due the $66 million in state loans and grants Essar received seven years ago.
