Indiana Governor Mike Pence says that the state will reopen the discussion of possible incentives for a planned fertilizer plant in Posey County.

The incentives were originally withdrawn after security concerns with the Pakistani Company, Fatima Group, a lead investor in the plant.

Governor Pence originally feared the fertilizer used by the Fatima Group was connected to bombs aimed at US soldiers, but Pence says new reports have eased his concerns.

The Fatima Group previously said it would build in Posey County, even without state aid.
