AUSTIN (KXAN) – More than three years after a fire led to an explosion inside a fertilizer plant in the community of West, Texas, families are finally getting some answers about what happened.
Federal investigators concluded the explosion which killed 15 was criminal. However, it’s not clear who or what actually committed that criminal act.
On Sunday’s edition of State of Texas: In-Depth, KXAN Investigator Robert Maxwell and Texas Tribune reporter Jim Malewitz joined host Josh Hinkle to talk about the legislative legacy of the explosion.
While there was a lot of discussion immediately after the explosion in 2013, lawmakers only passed a handful of changes in the 2015 session.
You can watch that full discussion in the episode linked above.
