The congressmen toured United Taconite in Eveleth before visiting with Twin Metals officials and taking in the proposed underground copper-nickel mine site near Ely.

 The lawmakers, all in support of overturning the proposed 234,000 acre land withdrawal in Superior National Forest near the Boundary Waters, said they’re looking to return local control back to the communities impacted by the effort.
“We have to stand up and fight together to make sure those agreements are honored,” Westerman said.
