Lawmakers water down Bion support

Public pressure forced the St. Lawrence County legislature to step back from a declaration of support for a massive feedlot and bioenergy project. According to the Watertown Daily Times, more than 75 people showed up at the Board meeting last night, most to express concerns about Bion's 84,000 beef cow and ethanol plans. The Board passed a resolution 12 to 2 that added the word "conceptual" to its already "tentative support" of the project. The resolution will create a task force to analyze Bion's plans.
