U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham says he’s pleased with President Obama’s announcement Tuesday of $8 billion in loan guarantees for the construction of new nuclear power plants. Graham calls the announcement a step forward in the right direction.
This is a significant step forward. It will benefit the two plants being built in Georgia. And I would like to expand this loan guarantee program. We could have a renaissance of nuclear power which will create millions of jobs. This is a good step forward. We just need more of it.
Graham says South Carolina is uniquely positioned to be one of the states which benefits the most from a renaissance of nuclear energy.
