The closure is expected to have a 73-million dollar impact on Logan County.  Kelly adds he and his co-workers aren't going to let Governor Quinn close the facility without a fight.
He was part of a team that led a rally in Lincoln yesterday and plans on testifying at the public hearing about the closure on October 26th.
