U.S. Senators Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA) comment on the agreement reached to continue construction of Plant Vogtle near Augusta, GA, which is the only nuclear plant under construction in the country:

“As someone who has supported Plant Vogtle since its inception and understands the need for us to provide renewable, affordable and safe energy, I am pleased that all parties were able to come together on an agreement to complete this critical project,” said Senator Isakson. “Today’s agreement allowing the completion of Plant Vogtle is a huge step forward to strengthen America’s nuclear security and energy security and to preserve the more than 7,000 Georgia jobs created by this project.”

“Plant Vogtle is an incredible opportunity for our state and our country to finally be a leader in nuclear energy. I am encouraged that all parties involved have found a path forward for this critical project,” said Senator Perdue. “I’ve seen firsthand the tremendous progress being made on Vogtle 3 & 4 – the first new nuclear units built in the United States in more than 30 years. For the country’s long-term energy independence, it is imperative that this project be completed.”
