Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – State Senator Tom Casperson joined the SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to talk about Senate Bill 390.

The measure, introduced by Casperson, seeks to earmark $500,000 of the annual revenue from a tax imposed on low grade iron ore to the local intermediate school district where the mine is located.

Casperson said the measure is directly tied to Cleveland-Cliffs and tax revenues that are generated in their Marquette County mining operations.

The Escanaba Republican’s measure was amended to establish that money in a state mine reclamation fund cannot be spent except with an appropriation enacted by the legislature.

Casperson said the measure is currently moving through the State House and he says he expects action on the bill soon.
