Wednesday in the Illinois General Assembly, much anticipated legislation dealing with Nuclear energy in Illinois that could keep Exelon Power Station in Clinton open, moved forward.
For months all we've heard about the nuclear energy bill is that is being worked on and progress is incremental, but Wednesday, positive news came from Springfield. State Senator Chapin Rose indicates the bill is headed to the full House.
The Senator says the legislation moving forward is a good thing but he notes there is a long ways to go. Sen. Rose anticipates several amendments being made to the bill.
Sen. Rose points out the budget discussions, or lack their of, at the Capitol could be a hold up in the legislation passing.
Sen. Rose indicates the budget talks are holding up everything in Springfield and the General Assembly isn't expected back until after Thanksgiving.
