State Rep. Noel Frame, who lives in Greenwood, is sponsoring a bill that would help businesses and non-profits affected by future gas pipeline explosions.

According to the press release, House Bill 2135 would establish a mitigation fund to assist entities that suffer damages in future accidents. The House Technology and Economic Development Committee heard public testimony on the bill yesterday (the one-year anniversary of the March 9, 2016, explosion in downtown Greenwood). Scott Nolte, Producing Artistic Director of Taproot Theatre, and Kelly Kasper of HT2 Consulting Services and a Greenwood resident, testified.
