Workers lobby lawmakers for nuke plant site permit
Thursday, February 10, 2011
Around 70 people who might help build a future Callaway County nuclear power plant walked the halls of the Missouri Capitol Wednesday, telling lawmakers why they should support proposals to help Ameren Missouri and other electric companies start the federal application process for a plant license.
“This is a great long-term solution that provides a lot of employment for the entire state of Missouri,” freshman Sen. Mike Kehoe, R-Jefferson City, told the group before they began visiting the lawmakers.
The lobbying effort was organized by the group “Missourians for a Balanced Energy Future.”
