Ethanol Plant Hearing

ConAgra Trade Group may soon have the permit they need to begin building an ethanol plant near Clovis.

The company testified in front of the New Mexico Environmental Improvement Board Friday, that they've followed all state and federal regulations about notifying the public about the plant.

The hearing was held after an appeal was filed on the grounds that they didn't correctly notify residents of the plants' location, which is just outside Clovis city limits. Some residents nearby the site have been complaining about the pollution the ethanol plant could produce if built.

The state is expected to make a decision on the permit in November.
