Tano Tijerina Concerned About South Texas Oil Refinery

By  | 

LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - Judge Tano Tijerina's sudden withdraw in support of oil refinery being built in south Texas has some concerned.

Back in December, we spoke with county officials in counties of Duval and Jim Hogg, along with Tijerina who were in support of the creation of an oil refinery near Hebrronville that could create 1500 temporary jobs and 500 permanent ones.

Tano said that one of the factors was that Bruni High School was too close by, which was a concern for him.

We reached out to county officials in counties of Duval and Jim Hogg regarding Tano's decision but have yet to hear back from anyone.
