Fertilizer Plant Explosions Anniversary

Posted: Updated:
This week marks the one year anniversary of the fertilizer plant explosion is West, TX.

As the anniversary approaches, Texas lawmakers are considering tougher oversight of chemical facilities.

Chairman Joe Pickett has said lawmakers are unlikely to impose more permitting of chemical plants.  The El Paso Democrat has instead suggested that more power could be given to state inspectors.

Investigators have still not determined a single cause of the explosion that killed 15 people.
