I can't imagine for a second the state putting up any resistance to development of any kind anywhere at this time, unless, someone in Cliffs has some influence at that level. That being said this situation appears to be quite simply a yea or nay on their part and since they didn't come right out and say "Hell yes, we truly support our community here. Take the rights," then they simply want something out of this ($$$$$). No corporation, especially a large one, will ever just give anything. What I don't understand is why they were allowed to retain any influence after abandonment. For what it appears that they are doing now demonstrates that that was a mistake to begin with.
