Some Posey County residents are relieved to hear that Governor Pence has pulled the incentive package that would have allowed the construction of a fertilizer plant.
"Our welfare, our air we breathe, our safety is much more important than the jobs," says Governor Mike Pence.
The Pakistan-based Fatima group still hopes a deal can be reached and economic leaders in Posey County aren't ready to close the books on the plant.
The proposed plant has been controversial from the start because government officials say products manufactured by the Pakistani based company are suspected to have been used to make IEDs that kill American soldiers overseas. That group says they reformulated their fertilizer, but not in time to save the deal.
