Alabama State Rep. Wayne Johnson told supporters that he hoped his bill to block quarries from operating near schools would make it to a House committee, but he conceded even if the bill passes, it won’t prevent Vulcan Materials from operating a quarry on Gurley Mountain. Johnson said his bill to prevent quarries from locating within two miles of schools should go to committee in April, according to al.com.
