Illinois should lift ban on new nuclear plants
A Decatur Herald-Review editorial urges the Illinois legislature to pass a bill that lifts the state's ban on new nuclear plants. State law requires a federal plan for nuclear-waste disposal to be in place before plants may be built. "Nuclear waste is an issue, but it shouldn't stop the state, or the nation, from investing in nuclear power. ... Given the state's position in nuclear-power creation, it would be unwise to sit idly by and allow other states to bid on a new nuclear plant," the editorial argues. Herald & Review (Decatur, Ill.)
