Whitfield, McConnell, Paul Sent Letter Requesting Meeting on Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant

 

dept energyPADUCAH, KY (2/10/12) – WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield (KY-01), Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Energy and Power, along with U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and U.S. Senator Rand Paul, sent a letter to Secretary of Energy Steven Chu today requesting a meeting to discuss the future of the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant.
 
The letter states, “It is likely that in May of this year, the site will be forced to cease operations if the Department does not use its existing authority to enrich the tails located on site, which will extend the life of this plant and save the 1,200 jobs directly affiliated with it. DOE has both the jurisdiction and the authority to resolve this issue. The continued lack of action from the Department, particularly with this many jobs at stake, is inexcusable.”
