Rep. Jeanie Riddle, R-Mokane, said Monday she intends to file legislation soon that would allow Ameren Missouri to recover costs of obtaining an early site permit for a second nuclear reactor at Callaway Energy Center.
“Last year the House approved a measure I offered that would make it possible to expand the nuclear plant in Callaway County. I intend to use that exact language that was approved last year as a starting point for this year,” Riddle said.
The measure offered by Riddle last year was approved by a vote of 121 to 21 in the House. But the issue died in the Senate when agreement could not be reached.
