$150M For Nuclear Plant Added To Bill
WASHINGTON — A proposed uranium enrichment plant received a boost Tuesday when a Senate subcommittee agreed to include $150 million in a federal spending bill for research and development at the plant, located about 90 miles southeast of Middletown.
Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, said he wants the Department of Energy to move forward with providing funding in fiscal 2012 for the plant despite the fact that Congress has yet to formally approve it.
“The agency can provide funding immediately through existing authorities, and I would urge them to do so before existing funding runs out and layoffs at the site begin,” he said.
