Northern Wisconsin state lawmakers joined Stella Jones company executives at a ceremony in Madison on Wednesday, where Gov. Scott Walker signed legislation into law that will help reduce costs for the company's Superior facility.

The railroad tie grinding plant recently moved from Duluth to Superior and had trouble securing a solid waste permit. 

The new measure will save the company from paying $40,000 each year for the permit.  

The law will not remove any environmental standards or its long-term financial obligation for remediation, according to Wisconsin democrats.

The bill was authored by Rep. Nick Milroy (D-Superior).
