Behn Supports Power Plant Legislation

Posted on 18 March 2011 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—State Senator Jerry Behn (R) Boone is the ranking member of the Senate Commerce Committee. Behn was a supporter of legislation that moved through the Committee two weeks ago, streamlining the regulatory process for any business planning on developing a nuclear power plant. Since then, the catastrophe in Japan has led many people to question the direction of the Iowa Senate. Behn says one issue that’s been raised is the amount that would be charged back to cover the cost of plant development, whether the plant is built or not.
