An important milestone in removing irrational barriers to nuclear energy development is about to take place. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is soon expected to sign AB 384, a bipartisan bill which will remove the over 30-year old moratoria on the construction of new nuclear facilities in the state.
This straightforward proposal simply allows clean, emissions-free nuclear power to be considered by state policymakers when planning for Wisconsin’s energy future. CEA joined a coalition of voices to urge the Wisconsin legislature and Governor Walker to repeal the moratorium and applauds them for moving forward.
Now, a new conversation on how nuclear power can help meet the future energy needs of consumers across Wisconsin can take place.
