No vote on last-minute cement plant legislation

No vote on last-minute cement plant legislation
Published: 29 June 2009

It looks as if Titan America’s plans for a new cement plant in Castle Hayne will continue – at least for now.

North Carolina senators postponed taking action on a bill that could have forced Titan America to undergo an extensive environmental review.

Two coastal senators, Julia Boseman and Carolyn Justice, inserted the legislation into a bill intended to regulate hot water heaters.

Other senators say they were blindsided by the legislation and won’t vote on it.
