Kehoe files new nuclear plant bill

February 24th, 2011 in News

State Sen. Mike Kehoe has introduced a new, longer version of the proposal to let ratepayers pay for the costs of a utility company's successful efforts to get a site plan permit for a future nuclear power plant.

Kehoe said Wednesday night the new law is the result of "multiple meetings, for hours at each time, trying to work through this. ... I think it's exciting that we've been able to listen to the concerns of the large utility companies, the large industrial company users, and we feel like we've addressed (their) concerns.

"Senate Bill 321 has incredible consumer protections in it."
