Four state lawmakers are desperately searching for someone to buy the Michigan Chejnical Corporation locateci in the town of St. Louis, Mich. They've obtained a one month delay in the closing of the plant, , keeping 340 workers on the job. Those jobs will be permanently lost if the plant isn't kept open. The present owners have decided it will be better to close the facility down rather than spend $3 rrĂ¯illion to meet environmental standards imposed by the state. Michigan Chemical has been dubbed the worst polluter in the state by the Department of Natural Resources, mainly because traces of PBB still show up in fts discharge pipes which flow into the Pine River.
