Taylor: Public Will have Say on Salt Dome

There are 1 comment on the The South Mississippi Sun Herald story from Dec 11, 2007, titled Taylor: Public Will have Say on Salt Dome. In it, The South Mississippi Sun Herald reports that:

'I can't remember when public hearings didn't win out,' he said.

The Department of Energy project has been criticized for excluding public comment on the project; the environmental assessment of the Leaf River as a water source to dissolve the salt dome in Perry County began three days after Katrina, and in spite of findings of possible damage to endangered species and Coast economies, the project was approved in early 2007.
