Bonham Hosts Coal Plant Hearing

12-7-06 A hearing in Bonham regarding the future of a coal-burning power plant in Savoy brought out a large crowd. A judge along with representatives from TXU and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality heard testimony from several opposition groups including Citizens Organizing for Resources and Environment CORE.

The meeting was held to determine whether or not those organizations would be part of case proceedings. Despite some tense moments at the meeting, Bonham officials say they were glad to host the event and to see the different opinions within the crowd.

A similar hearing is scheduled for December 14th.
