  • New York Times and Bad Rivers challenge to resist the mining onslaught is mentioned. - Native Vote 2014
    Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa and Fifield the managing director of Gogebic Taconite GTac a division of the Cline Group a mining company based in Florida He had come to Wiggins s office to discuss GTac s desire to build a 1 5 billion open pit iron ore mine in the Penokee Hills about seven miles south of the Bad River reservation Over the past year the mining bill that Mike Wiggins was intent on stopping became increasingly significant to the Walker administration During his campaign for governor in 2010 Walker promised to create 250 000 private sector jobs which he recently reaffirmed According to the most recent monthly survey from the Bureau of Labor Statistics the state has lost more than 21 000 nonfarm jobs since April of last year Despite Wisconsin s economic struggles Walker has defended his decision to turn down 810 million in federal stimulus money for a proposed high speed rail link between Madison and Milwaukee By last summer the economic situation in the state was continuing to deteriorate and the mining bill had become a top priority in Walker s jobs program It also managed to create a rare split in his broad based opposition Governor s Cabinet When I spoke with him in March Wiggins detailed several meetings he had with Walker in which he tried to convey how dire the mine would be for his reservation and the surrounding environment Their last meeting in September turned particularly acrimonious Beforehand Wiggins held a news conference inside the Capitol outlining his opposition to the mining legislation The Assembly bill would impose a 360 day deadline for the permitting process where before there had been none and it would eliminate hearings in which citizens or organizations can question mining or government officials under oath about the safety of the mine Many of the key provisions in the Assembly bill were drafted by lawyers working for GTac Walker saw the news conference as disingenuous Wiggins said When we got to the meeting he was fixated on his anger with me After some heated back and forth Walker told Wiggins he didn t see the need for the meeting since he had a copy of the tribe s news release Wiggins got angry You know governor he recalled some of the things that are proposed in the mining initiative represent a catastrophic destruction for my reservation health impacts to my people and you think everything that you and I have to talk about is contained on one piece of paper right there Republican Senator that halted the AB426 Mining Legislation Vote Schultz was sympathetic to Wiggins and the Bad River Chippewa For them this place is like Bethlehem is for our Christians he said So they re obviously going to fiercely defend their territory If you read some of the comments from Assembly members they re saying We don t have to listen to them So there is an unbelievable amount of anger and fear
