AUSTIN -- Two months to the day after the deadly plant explosion in West, state lawmakers discussed how to prevent a similar disaster.

At the hearing Monday they discussed creating an online database the public can use to see where dangerous chemicals are stored.

Lawmakers also want to see a list of regulatory best practices from state officials; signs to mark areas where ammonium nitrate is stored and more training for volunteer fire departments.
