Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken say the decision will protect jobs in the state's iron mining industry.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Authorities think a man wanted for a fatal shooting in Arden Hills may be using social media sites to find shelter and keep out of sight. Ty Hoffman is accused of shooting his former lover Kelly Phillips to death outside a gas station nearly two weeks ago.
