Not Giving Up on Nuclear
Frankfort, KY – A Senate committee isn't giving up a proposal to lift Kentucky's moratorium on nuclear power plants. Legislators added the measure to a bill that would extend eminent domain rights to pipeline companies that would dispose of carbon dioxide, a byproduct of converting coal to cleaner burning fuels. The Senate Judiciary Committee approved the revised measure. The Senate voted in January to remove the state's ban on building nuclear power plants, but the proposal has made no headway in the House.
