ICYMI: News Roundup

Capitol Hill may be quiet as Congress is out campaigning before Election Day, but it's been a big week for nuclear in the media. Here's a roundup of the most important stories: 
  • Google issued a report about moving to 100% carbon-free electricity for its data centers that specifically mentions nuclear as an important piece of that puzzle, particularly in North Carolina, Finland, and Taiwan. 
  • Several Senators called on the administration to halt talks with Saudi Arabia regarding a potential civil nuclear export agreement in the wake of journalist Jamal Kashoggi's murder.
  • Secretary of Energy Rick Perry clarified that the White House still supports the Yucca Mountain project after Trump suggested he is considering withdrawing support last weekend. Perry stated, "I'm going to follow the law. And the law says, 'here are the things you're going to do.' Those have to be funded."
