Congressman Rick W. Allen (R-GA-12) released the following statement in response to U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry’s announcement that they will offer conditional commitments for up to$3.7 billion in loan guarantees to Plant Vogtle owners:

“Georgia’s 12th Congressional district and Plant Vogtle are at the forefront of nuclear energy expansion, where they are constructing two of the first new nuclear reactors in the United States in more than 30 years. I extend my deepest gratitude to Secretary Perry for his renewed commitment to Plant Vogtle. With today’s investment announcement, the Department of Energy recognizes that the future of nuclear energy in America depends on this important project.”
