Governor Plugs Mining in Tour of State Submitted: 01/02/2013
MADISON - Governor Scott Walker plans to talk about mining and jobs during three stops around Wisconsin.

Walker visited Valley Plating and Fabricating in Green Bay this morning to promote his mining agenda.

Then he's off to Schofield where he'll address employees at L & S Electric.

The governor will make his final stop of the day in Milwaukee where he'll meet with employees at Phoenix Products Company.

The Legislature is expected to revisit Wisconsin's mining regulations after the session begins this month.

Republicans have worked to help Florida-based Gogebic Taconite.

The company has looked into opening a huge iron mine just south of Lake Superior.

Company officials have promised the mine would create 700 jobs in the economically depressed region.

The firm wants legislators to streamline the mine permitting process.
