Lawmakers Create Nuclear Energy Caucus
Pennsylvania is one of the nation’s leading nuclear energy producers and home to five nuclear stations. Nuclear energy accounts for nearly 37 percent of Pennsylvania’s power production, which contributes to our state’s status as the top net exporter of energy.
In order to better educate members of the General Assembly regarding issues pertaining to the nuclear energy industry, several of my colleagues and I recently announced the creation of a new bi-partisan, bi-cameral caucus that is focused on nuclear energy. As one of four co-chairs of the Nuclear Energy Caucus, I hope this body will serve as a critical resource as we consider energy issues, including reliability, affordability and safety. It is the first caucus of its kind in the entire country.
There are currently 67 members of the Nuclear Energy Caucus. More information about the formation of this new caucus is available on my website here.
It was an honor to present a citation in remembrance of Cpl. Kenneth Stuck KIA (MIA for 65 yrs) in Korea to his brother MSG Clarence Stuck on the floor of the PA Senate. I also offered floor remarks, which are available at https://pasen.wistia.com/medias/cmz1ts0rdg. Cpl. Stuck was declared missing in action on November 2, 1950. His remains were returned to his family and he was finally laid to rest in January of 2016.
