Turk Plant: Keep building, PC&E says

Posted By on Fri, Sep 25, 2009 at 11:39 AM

The state Pollution Control and Ecology Commission this morning denied a request from the Sierra Club and Audubon Arkansas to stop construction on American Electric Power's coal-fired plant in Hempstead County during court appeals.

The Arkansas Court of Appeals recently overturned the Public Service Commission approval of the plant. Surprise: Two PC&E members voted for the stay, Commissioners John Chamberlin of Little Rock (who I misidentified originally as a state agency head) and Scott Henderson, state Game and Fish director. Probably worth noting along with my correction: Chamberlin was named to the Commission in April by Gov. Beebe to succeed Tom Schueck, who would have been on the other side.
