The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Nuclear power bill receives approval from Kentucky Senate

 Floyd County Times , 2 Mar  17     Staff Report FRANKFORT — A bill that would lift a moratorium on nuclear power plants in the state was approved by the Kentucky Senate on Wednesday.

Senate Bill 11 would amend statutes to change the requirement that facilities have means of permanent disposal of nuclear waste. Instead they would only be required to have a plan for its safe storage, and that the plans be approved by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

It would also eliminate several other obstacles to the construction and maintenance of nuclear facilities……..

Senate Bill 11 was approved on a 27-8 vote and now goes the House of Representatives for consideration.
