The Bloomington-based medical device maker estimates it will pay between $20 million and $30 million once the tax takes effect in January, Pete Yonkman, executive vice president of strategic business units at Cook Medical, said this week.

    Washington, D.C. – – Frontiers of Freedom Institute today voiced opposition to approval by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) of a $2.3 billion bailout for the privately-held Dakota, Minnesota and Eastern Railroad (DM&E), orchestrated by DM&E lobbyist-turned-U.S. Senator John Thune. "The American taxpayer is being railroaded again,” said George Landrith, President of Frontiers of Freedom Institute. “This enormous government giveaway is a textbook example of a stealth pork project that drives up the federal deficit. Congress and the President should put a stop to it.” “The loan and the secret way it was engineered are outrageous. We don’t even know...
