McConnell, Paul and Whitfield Speak Out on Paducah DOE Site

dept energyPADUCAH, Ky. (5/13/13) – Senators Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul and Congressman Ed Whitfield today released the following statement regarding their letter to the Department of Energy (DOE) concerning the reindustrialization of the Paducah site.
 
“Last year we fought hard to save the federal government money and preserve 1,200 jobs at the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant. Now it is time for DOE to come up with a long-term plan that will maximize job retention and growth for the foreseeable future. We refuse to stand idly by while DOE runs out the clock on potential private sector job investment that would create jobs here in Paducah.
 
“We also made clear to the Department that we will refuse any proposal to move the depleted uranium tails out of state, which would only transfer economic development that may result from them elsewhere. We will continue to urge DOE to come up with a solution that is in the best interest of the people of Paducah and the taxpayers as a whole.”
