Behn on Electric Rates

Posted on 01 April 2011 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—State Senator Jerry Behn, Republican from Boone, is the Ranking Member on the Senate Commerce Committee. This week, the Committee held yet another meeting to receive comments from about proposed legislation that would allow MidAmerican Power to pursue investors for a possible nuclear power plant. Behn says most of the focus has been on the cost and the return on investment. He says there has been less concern recently over safety issues. Behn says the problem he sees is that the cost of electricity will continue to increase. The issue is what’s the most cost effective way to meet the demand.
