Stepp Steps Up Love For Iron Mine

In the same Beloit Daily News interview where she says this about a proposed iron ore mine: 

Gogebic Taconite wants to excavate an open pit mine south of Lake Superior, which has been a concern to environmentalists worried it could pollute the area’s rich natural resources, and has culminated in protests around the site. Stepp stressed that the DNR has not granted approval for the project, although the agency would work with Gogebic Taconite to assist them in the permit application process.
She also says:
“We are a permitting agency rather than a prohibitive agency,” Stepp added.

So the DNR works for GTAC but we pay their salaries?
