Local leaders are in Chicago today to discuss the economic impacts of nuclear power in Illinois.
Clinton City Administrator Tim Follow will join the likes of Cheri Bustos, Donne Trotter, and Chapin Rose in addressing a special panel about the impacts of nuclear power. Followell says his message is simple, no nuclear power in Illinois means rate increases that will be steep and implemented quickly.
Followell indicates this is just another step in the process of getting nuclear power legislation in Illinois. Followell says nuclear power across the country is becoming a big topic.
Followell says this is some evidence of work that is being done on the legislation. He points out all parties with an interest in this continue to meet and discuss the legislation.
We'll hear from State Senator Chapin Rose Thursday on the WHOW morning show at approximately 8:30 am on the hearing.
