On Wednesday morning, Posey County officials approved the re-issuance of $1.3 billion in bonds to build the Midwest Fertilizer facility being developed by the Fatima Group based in Pakistan.
You might remember the Fatima Group being criticized by the U.S military for being uncooperative in controlling the smuggling of fertilizer into Afghanistan where it was allegedly used in the making of IEDs.
Governor Mike Pence was briefed on the issue on his first day in office and withdrew his support. Now, he says the state won't stand in the way of Posey County working to get the plant built on its own.
Posey County has now started that process.
