Boehner Backs Bill To Keep Alive Ohio Uranium Plant
House Speaker John Boehner said he would support legislation to allow the Obama administration to spend an estimated $150 million to help a uranium enrichment project in southern Ohio move forward.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that a bill is expected to be introduced by members of the Ohio congressional delegation and could reach the House floor next month.
The Piketon plant would be at the site of a former gaseous diffusion plant that enriched uranium during the Cold War. It would produce enriched uranium for use in generating electricity at nuclear power plants.
Boehner, R-West Chester, has taken heat for not including the $150 million in a temporary spending bill. Boehner said the project would “create jobs and strengthen America’s energy security.”
