This ballot item is proposing to remove the term batch plant which was intended to describe any type of batching facilty where aggregates were being loaded. However, the term batch plant is commonly used to describe a specific type of asphalt production plant (vs. a drum plant). Therefore, it is being balloted to remove batch plant and replace it with production facility in paragraph 126.96.36.199 (1).
