Residents of Raleigh, N.C., left City Hall fuming after they failed in their effort to stop a quarry from expanding near their community, according to the News Observer.
County supervisors paved the way for the expansion of the Harris Quarry in Willits, Calif., and establishment of an asphalt plant on the site by confirming the quarry's use permit, according to the Willits News.
The U.S. House of Representatives passed the National Strategic and Critical Minerals Production Act (H.R. 4402), a measure designed to move the mine-permit process into the 21st Century.
A motions hearing has been set for a lawsuit that three couples living near the Bremer Quarry, south of Lake City, Minn., have filed against Wabasha County and the quarry, according to the Post Bulletin, Rochester, Minn.
