Take action: Stop the PolyMet Land Giveaway
PolyMet wants 6,650 acres of public land in the Superior National Forest for their open pit copper-nickel mine. Federal law and common sense say that taxpayers and public land users should get an equal value of public land in exchange. But the Forest Service told their appraiser to ignore the value this land has for PolyMet's mining proposal. That resulted in a bargain basement price of just $550 / acre.
HR 3115 would prevent the courts from reviewing this sweetheart deal for PolyMet. HR 3115 passed the US House but no Senate version has been introduced. Take action - send a message to your Senators asking them to oppose HR 3115.
