Today, Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA) President David Holt issued the following statement in response to Governor Scott Walker signing AB 384 into law, a bill that ends Wisconsin’s 33-year moratorium on new nuclear energy projects:

“CEA applauds Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker for signing AB 384 into law.  This bipartisan bill removes the illogical ban on new nuclear power construction that has been in place for far too long.  Consumers need as many power generation options as possible and this law simply allows clean, emissions-free nuclear power to be considered by state policymakers when planning Wisconsin’s energy future.

CEA commends the legislature and Governor Walker for taking this common-sense approach to addressing the needs of consumers, businesses, and energy-intensive manufacturers across the state.”
