    Texas State Chemist for fertilizer. Plant had received several State Chemist inspections, but because terra and security, the nature of any violations found wouldn't be publicized.  In 2012 a Fed inspection (probably DoT /NTSB) resulted in a $10 K fine for the plant for labeling violations and lack of a safe-transport permit for anhydrous ammonia.
    But the owners took steps and the feds halved the fines.
