Texas has had quite a few plants blowing up over the last couple of years.  Perhaps they need to finally realize that those pesky industrial regulations they like to gut so much just aren't for show.

I'm beginning to think that the cost of violation of regs is much cheaper than complying, so they just take the risk. Banks get fined millions for something they did that profited them in the billions. Part of the cost of doing business.
