How would Congress vote if Independents had their way?
The sense of Congress is that...
Nuclear power provides a proven source of affordable, carbon free energy, which is why countries like France rely on it for 80% of their electricity. We should provide loan guarantees to stimulate construction of more nuclear plants, and open the Yucca Mountain storage facility for nuclear waste.
The minority position is that there are too many unanswered questions about the safety of nuclear power, such as how to dispose of nuclear waste. The government should not be in the business of subsidizing more nuclear power.
