Ask and You Shall Receive
Last week, I posted about rising fuel prices and an unsuccessful bill aimed at combating the cost. One provision of that legislation was to cut the government red tape surrounding the building of refineries, to make them easier to build. Well, it appears one town in South Dakota has heeded his suggestions and given its OK to proceed with building a new refinery by allowing for the proposed site to be rezoned. I would like to think that the town’s decision was based solely on my prior post, but I guess I can’t take credit for everything. Supporters of the rezoning cited "the once-in-a-lifetime economic opportunities the $10 billion project would bring" as their reason for supporting the project. Whatever the reason, this is one step in the right direction.
