Officials from Texas A&M will not be disciplined after all, for the 1999 bonfire accident that killed 12 students and injured 27 others. The State Board of Engineers and the university came to an agreement on Friday. As part of that deal, a licensed professional engineer will be required to design and oversee any future bonfires for the university.
