Indiana officials say a proposed bio-mass plant in Scott County is one step closer to getting an air permit.
Residents packed the Scottsburg High School cafeteria to hear information about the plant Wednesday night.
But some came to protest the idea holding signs showing their displeasure of the bio-mass plant.
They're concerned about air quality even though officials say the plant will only burn wood chips that haven't been painted or treated.
Kim Amrhein said, “I will be as active as I have to be to stop it. From what I’ve seen so far, I don't want no part of it.“
Indiana officials say it will likely be two months before the EPA will grant the air permit and a water permit may also need to be granted.
