Only hours are left at the state capitol to present a bio energy bill. It's needed to bring a biomass power plant to Nacogdoches County. Other Deep East Texas counties with similar pending projects have a stake in it too.
The legislature recessed at midnight, Wednesday. The bill was one of seven reset for Wednesday. If it's not heard by the end of Wednesday the bill dies. Leaders of Nacogdoches Power have already said they'll have to pull the project and move it to Florida without the legislation. Temple Inland has been fighting the subsidies the bill would generate. Representative Wayne Christian calls it, "corporate greed overriding the working man."
