Davis Statement on Passage of State Energy Bill
U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) today released the following statement after the Illinois state legislature passed an energy bill to help Exelon’s nuclear plants:
“I commend Governor Rauner and state legislators, including Chapin Rose and Bill Mitchell, for working together to pass an energy bill that will help keep DeWitt County’s largest employer open for business,” said Davis. “Clinton Power Station is responsible for thousands of good-paying jobs and economic benefits that will stay in this community because of this legislation. This gives us ten years to develop better policies to ensure base load power stations, like Clinton, remain an integral part of our energy grid.”
Davis and other members of the Illinois Congressional Delegation sent a letter back in May urging state action.
