I may not be an expert in

I may not be an expert in geology but the economics of this issue are not as clear as you make them out to be. For years US consumers have been higher hidden costs for cheap goods through pollution, health risks, etc. Do I want cheap cement so that I can pay higher health care costs? Have our tourism and fishing industries impacted? Decrease my quality of life? When you factor in all the costs associated with this project the cement is not so cheap anymore. But I guess I am just a crazy environmentalist that believes in global warming and pollution. I apologize if my comment about blue collar versus white collar jobs came across as elitist. That is not what I intened but is of course how those of you in the Pro Titan group will spin it. The focus is on bringing jobs that do not pollute our local environment versus those that do. What existing law am I trying to get the state/county to ignore? In essence, I don't think I am trying to get the state to ignore a law but instead trying to get them to change it- which is just what you recommended. Thanks for the advice!
