Lummis soda ash bill gets hearing

Apr 26, 2012 The Associated Press

CHEYENNE -- A bill aimed at keeping Wyoming soda ash competitive globally is being reviewed in Washington.

The U.S. House Natural Resources Committee held a hearing Thursday on a proposal to keep the 2 percent royalty rate for soda ash.

The rate is scheduled to expire in October.

U.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis says her bill is needed to help producers compete with the synthetic soda ash industry in China.
