(Host) The International Paper Company in Ticonderoga hopes to work with the Douglas administration to resolve air pollution concerns over a plan to burn tire chips at the plant.

IP spokeswoman Donna Wadsworth says she’s hopeful the company can resolve the state’s concerns. She said there’s no date set for the test burn.

(Wadsworth) “We’re still waiting on a ruling from the New York state Department of Environmental Conservation on approval for the test. And in the interim, we are continuing conversation with the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources, supplying information to Senators Jeffords and also staying in touch with Governor Douglas’ office. And hopeful we can resolve the concerns and differences. But at the moment we have no date set for the trial.”

(Host) Governor Jim Douglas has said that he’s prepared to use all legal options to stop the test at the Ticonderoga paper mill.
