Cement ban bill discussion, US

Titan America representatives and opponents to the company’s proposed cement plant packed into a committee meeting in Raleigh Tuesday to discuss a proposed ban on cement plant production.

Boseman’s bill puts an 18 month moratorium on cement plant production in the state. This would put the brakes on Titan America’s plans to build a cement plant in Castle Hayne.

Both New Hanover County and the state have given Titan tax incentives. Boseman says while she respects former Governor Mike Easley, she disagrees with his decision to give the company incentives.

Titan says it will meet all regulatory requirements, and the plant would create much needed jobs and boost North Carolina’s struggling economy.
