State legislators to discuss moratorium on cement plant


State legislators will discuss a proposal for a moratorium on a local and controversial cement plant permit at a hearing in Raleigh Tuesday morning. The group Stop Titan plans to take a bus load of opponents of Titan America's proposed cement plant in Castle Hayne to the meeting. Titan representatives will also be there. Last week, Senator Julia Boseman filed Senate Bill 699 to stop permits for cement plants in North Carolina until September 1, 2010, so the Environmental Review Commission can study the environmental impacts of cement plants. WWAY's Kevin Wuzzardo will also be at the hearing, and have a full report Tuesday night on WWAY.
