The Permanent Joint Legislative Committee on Energy Policy met last month to consider an energy plan for the State of Alabama. The committee voted in favor of a nuclear plant to be built next to the Tennessee Valley Authority’s unfinished Bellefonte nuclear plant in northeast Alabama. A resolution was unanimously adopted urging the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and TVA to go forward with the two-reactor project in Jackson County. Sponsored by Huntsville Senator Parker Griffith, the resolution says there have been no nuclear generation plants constructed for over two decades and that nuclear power is critical to overall state and national energy plans. It’s good to see the legislators paying attention to the energy problems facing our state.
