IN Sen. Young tours Country Mark Oil Refinery

POSEY CO., IN (WFIE) - Indiana Senator Todd Young toured the Country Mark Oil Refinery on Tuesday while stopping through town.

Senator Young talked with company workers and employees about what Country Mark is doing to cut down on emissions and create a safer work environment. Senator Young says he relies on interacting with the people of Indiana to do his job.

“I spend about half my time traveling around the state of Indiana, visiting with people where they work, where they play, where they live, and even where they pray and hearing about their needs from their government," explains Senator Young. "Often times they need us to stay out of the way, but sometimes we can help legislatively.”

Country Mark says they plan to invest $550 million over the next seven years to improve safety and cut down on environmental impacts.
