Reader's view: Minnesota Power must act now to lower emissions

Published 02/25/2012, Duluth News Tribune

While they have released news briefs on this subject, they have yet to outline a plan on when these tasks will be accomplished by the looming 2015 deadline. A new federal law states that coal plants must reduce mercury emissions 90 percent by 2015.
