Illinois Opens Door to New Nuclear Plants

State legislators in Illinois have lifted a 23-year ban on building nuclear plants within the state.

The state already has 14 nuclear facilities, but banned construction of new plants after the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown of 1986.

"Sen. Mike Jacobs (D-East Moline) said the legislation, which passed 40-1 and now moves to the House, is necessary to position the state for billions of federal dollars from President Obama's administration for new nuclear plants and thousands of resulting construction jobs."
