A plan for the state to revive shuttered paper mills in central and northern Wisconsin has taken a new, bipartisan turn after Democrats and Republicans each tried to use the issue as a bargaining chip earlier this year.

New legislation, AB-682 in the state Assembly, would provide a $1 million grant to the Verso Paper mill in Wisconsin Rapids and a $15 million loan guarantee for the Park Falls Pulp and Paper mill in Park Falls.
