Apodaca, Berger file governor’s coal ash plan

From press release:

Raleigh, N.C. – To kick off the start of the 2014 short session, Senate Rules Committee Chairman Tom Apodaca (R-Henderson) and Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) filed a bill Wednesday morning consisting of Gov. Pat McCrory’s coal ash mitigation proposal. It was the first bill filed in the Senate this session.
“Addressing the environmental concerns presented by coal ash ponds remains one of the Senate’s top priorities for this short session,” said Apodaca and Berger. “It’s important to get this conversation started right away, and Gov. McCrory’s proposal to handle the Dan River coal ash spill and other coal ash ponds is a good starting point.”
Apodaca, who as Rules Chairman directs the flow of legislation in the Senate, said the bill will receive a committee hearing soon.
