WMC VP says timeline is long enough to permit mine

WMC VP for Government Relations Scott Manley told the committee the GOP bill's 480-day permitting timeline will be enough time to properly permit a mine and that most of the concerns about sulfides and environmental damage are overblown.

Manley told the committee that the timeline of the GOP bill won't be an issue because if the mining company and the DNR are talking before the application is submitted, they will make sure they've prepared the right information before submitting an application and starting the clock.

Manley also batted back against allegations that the bill would allow wholesale exemptions to the new mining statutes, saying that requires a "cynical view" of state regulators. He said that the DNR would likely never approve an exemption to large scale requirements such as how to dispose of waste rock.
