Sen. Bakk warns Cook County that anti-mining stance could cost it

 


State Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk warned county commissioners in northeastern Minnesota that they would risk losing state money if they passed a resolution to ban copper mining inside the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCA).
