Tell Your Legislators: Bring Mining Jobs to WI!


We have a chance to bring thousands of jobs and billions in private investment to Wisconsin, we just need the legislature to create certainty in our mining permitting process.


Northern Wisconsin is home to one of the largest iron ore deposits in North America. But our current mining permitting process has prevented any new mining operation from starting up in over 40 years.


With just a few clicks, you can tell your state legislators you want them to make these simple changes to grow Wisconsin!


With the unemployment rate climbing to 11.9% in Iron County, the time is now to bring jobs and prosperity to an area that desperately needs it. And it’s not just Iron County that will see jobs created, businesses from Green Bay to Wausau to Milwaukee will see the benefits. Wisconsin is already home to two of the largest mining equipment manufacturers, Joy Global and Catepillar.


Last year, this important bill failed at the end of session by just one vote. But now we have another chance as Assembly Bill 1 and Senate Bill 1 are introduced and working their way through the legislature.


Contact your legislators today to show your support for this important legislation. We have all seen the success we can have when we all speak with the same voice. Now is the time to speak up and make our position heard.

If you would like more information on why Americans for Prosperity supports Assembly Bill 1 and Senate Bill 1, Click Here to read why we believe it will bring jobs and prosperity to Wisconsin.

AFP-Wisconsin fully supports AB 1 and SB 1 and we hope you will ask your lawmaker to do so as well.


Thanks for all you do!
