Ashland, WI (KDAL) - The Ashland City Council last night passed a bill that weighs in on the Mining Reform bill that is expected to be voted on Wednesday at the State Capitol in Madison.  The Mayor of Ashland met with his counterpart in Bayfield and members of the Bad River Tribe to raise issues they wanted to see addressed in the Senate measure.

The bill being considered today down south would ease restrictions on a proposed iron ore mine and processing plant in Ashland and Iron Counties.  If approved in the Senate the bill goes to the Assembly later this week or next.
