Dublin Business Journal Staff Report

December 21, 2017 - The Georgia Public Service Commission members voted unanimously to move forward with construction of Plant Vogtle units 3 and 4 today. Congressman Rick W. Allen (R-GA-12), representing Laurens County and much of Middle Georgia, released the following statement:

“I am proud to represent the 12th Congressional district of Georgia, where we are leading the way in America’s nuclear energy expansion. Employing nearly 6,000 people in my district and continuing our dominance in the global nuclear industry, the importance of the Plant Vogtle project cannot be overstated. Today I am grateful to the Georgia Public Service Commission for their unanimous decision to move forward with the construction of Plant Vogtle units 3 & 4.”


 “I believe this project is vital to our district, our state and America’s nuclear energy future. Looking forward, it is still critical for Congress to modify the Nuclear Production Tax Credit to extend the 2020 sunset date. Although this was not included in the final Tax Cuts and Jobs Act legislation, my colleagues on the Senate Finance Committee introduced a bill to extend these provisions yesterday. I thank my Senate colleagues for their continued commitment on this important issue and I will continue to do all I can to get the Nuclear Production Tax Credit extension over the finish line.”
