Iron Range Resources & Rehabilitation Board Legislations

St. Paul, MN (KDAL) - At the State Capitol in St. Paul yesterday the House passed and sent to the Governor's desk for his signature. The bill was needed because of redistricting that left the Iron Range Agency without a single board member.  Hibbing Representative Carly Melin introduced the measure and ended up voting against it because a Senate amendment added another Senate member to the board who would be selected by a Senate Committee.

The measure repeals a statue from 1999 that allows non-elected members to sit on the Board and lowers the amount of residents in a members district to only thirty percent living in the Taconite Assistance Area.
