The nation's first new nuclear power plant in a generation won approval Thursday as federal regulators voted to grant a license for two new reactors in Georgia.
Thursday was a bad day for government in the United States. You see, hundreds of job creators from across the country gathered in Dalton, Ga., for a summit about creating manufacturing jobs in America. By the time the summit ended, attendees had heard five hours of damning accounts of how government rules and regulations have kept jobs on the sidelines or shipped them away altogether.
Mr. Fanning said the company was "committed to bringing these units online to deliver clean, safe and reliable energy to our customers."
"The project is on track, and our targets related to cost and schedule are achievable," he said.
