For dredge miners, Bundy era is over

In his editorial today, Opinion Editor Marty Trillhaase of the Lewiston Tribune comments:

Ron Miller sounds like a man in a time warp.

The Clearwater-based president of Rocky Mountain Mining Rights told the Lewiston Tribune's Eric Barker last month he may not cooperate with the federal agencies charged with enforcing the Clean Water Act. He's not going to allow the feds to tell him when and how he can suction dredge mine on the South Fork of the Clearwater River.

If so, he seems to think he's still living in the Cliven Bundy era. More here.
