State Representative Terry Brown and a colleague have pre-filed a bill in the 2016 session would prohibit disposal by burning.

Brown says a proposed operation in Grant by Clean Harbor would also affect five surrounding parishes.

Brown reminds residents there is a public meeting on the permit request on February 23rd, at 6 pm, at the Grant Civic Center in Colfax.
