It isn't coming. There isn't enough steel business to support the exact same mill that we are. John C. just trying to get us back because we fired him. Now he is just trying to scam the taxpayers of Mississippi county to build a mill then shut it down and get his money. I'm glad all the other places he tried to build mills declined him those was very smart people and decisions!

John c. Already been fired from steel company's and Mississippi didn't want this one cause they don't trust his start up mill. Why is Arkansas providing him millions of our tax money to improve something we already have instead gambling it with something that isn't a guaranteed return of our money.
