Those rallying behind a future coal plant in Mexia have decided to pool their supporters and vote for a location in Leon County instead.

The Heart of Texas Council of Governments now feels Leon County would be a better choice than Limestone.

FutureGen is a plant which would turn coal into hydrogen-rich gas without releasing pollutants into the atmosphere.

Each state will select one site, then a vote will be made on the 50 candidates.

A Texas site could be chosen by early March.
