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 some countries rely on it for 80 percent of their electricity. We should provide loan guarantees to stimulate construction of more nuclear plants, and open the Yucca Mountain storage facility in Nevada 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 encourage the building of more nuclear power plants in the U.S.
