ANDREWS - Once again, Andrews is competing with several other cities for the chance to be the next home for a uranium enrichment plant

This time, International Isotopes, out of Idaho is considering building a multi-million dollar deconversion uranium plant in Andrews County, but Andrews isn't the only one putting in their bids in for the opportunity.

Hobbs, New Mexico, and Idaho are also in the running as possible sites.

Next week, International Isotopes representatives will be visiting with city officials to check out the site.
