The Brazos Valley is still in the running for the FutureGen project.

Tuesday, Governor Rick Perry announced the Jewett location in Leon County is one of the two Texas regions that has been selected to compete for the one billion dollar near zero emissions coal power plant. The other location is Odessa.

The Heart of Texas and Brazos Valley regional councils of government jointly submitted the Jewett proposal.

Perry made his announcement following the recommendation of the FutureGen Texas Advisory Board.

The Texas sites will have to compete against other sites around the country. Only one will be selected to house the plant.
