WHAG NEWS - The Review and Herald Publishing Association in Hagerstown will be shutting down after reporting a nearly $1 million loss in 2013. 

According to the Adventist Review Magazine, this announcement comes after a constituency vote Tuesday night. 

The Review and Herald Publishing Association Constituency voted 153 to 66 in favor of restructuring and phasing out operations from the Hagerstown plant. 

The magazine says some employees may be transferred to the Pacific Press Publishing Association. The plant's unneeded equipment and property will soon be sold, with the proceeds going to the Pacific Press. 

It's estimated that the plant employed about 100 people.
