We welcome todays historic announcement from the President’s announcment of an initial 8.3 Billion dollars in nuclear loan guarantees. We agree that this decision is key both to the nuclear industry, and to the overall US economy.
We also agree with the President that “to meet our growing energy needs and prevent the worst consequences of climate change, we’ll need to increase our supply of nuclear power. It’s that simple.” And we share the vision that the President described of “a future in which we’re exporting homegrown energy technology instead of importing foreign oil. And it’s a future in which our economy is powered not by what we borrow and spend but what we invent and what we build.”
