Iowa Plant Siting Initiation

Just today we find, by reading this article, that the upper Midwest may be on the list to have new nuclear plants built.

Anyone recall the early bids to give the Midwest atomic energy? There was the ACF Nuclear Division plant at Elk River, and Allis-Chalmers built the Pathfinder and La Crosse plants. While Elk River had to shut down due to primary leaks and Pathfinder... well, let's just say Pathfinder didn't work at all, La Crosse (aka Dairyland Power Co-Op Genoa No. 2) was a success.

Let's hope that every time I post a story about a siting or licensing bill that corresponds with a Presidential photo op that the nuclear part of the deal isn't left in the dust.
