Louisiana Legislature Supports Advanced Nuclear Energy Facility at River Bend

"Being chosen as one of six finalists for the potential location of an advanced nuclear energy plant is an exciting opportunity that the legislature recognizes as a vital component of the state's efforts to attract new jobs and industry," the resolution states. It also notes that "Entergy Nuclear's River Bend Station has an extraordinary level of support from the citizens of West Feliciana and the state as a whole." The existing plant "provides numerous job opportunities, and has an impressive record of operational safety, all of which warrant the River Bend Station being chosen for the location of an advanced nuclear energy plant."
