Illinois Removes Nuclear Plant Ban

Illinois removes nuclear plant ban

Seeing the handwriting on the wall, states are seriously started to look at increasing the use of nuclear power to meet their electrical needs, and the Illinois Senate voted on Monday to remove the ban on building new nuclear plants in the state; that after 23 years of forbidding new plants to be built.

In one hilarious response from an obviously disturbed and fearful person, they implied it would turn the state into a “radioactive waste repository.” Evidently the so-called activist hasn't heard you can now recycle nuclear waste and re-use it. Even if you couldn't it would still be very safe.

The measure passed by an overwhelming 40-1, and it now goes to the Illinois house for approval. Billions of dollars and many jobs are at stake for those wanting to get their share of the federal dollars being allocated for the building of the nuclear plants.

It's actually far past time nuclear power was re-introduced into the United States. The stupid and wasteful solar and wind power garbage does't work on a large scale, and nuclear is among the best there is out there.

Be on the lookout for uranium-producing companies, as they will be hot in the future as demand for the commodity surges.
