I oppose yet another bailout for TMI.

I do not support corporate socialism.

TMI was built by hostage rate payers for $1.1 billion. TMI-2 was bailed out from 1981-1993 at a cost of $987 million under the Thornburgh Plan. TMI-1 was part of the $9 billion deregulation bailout from 1999-2009.

TMI is the most uneconomical reactor in the state, and has lost more than $300 million dollars over the past five years despite the deregulation bailout.

Today is the deadline for coal-fired power plants to post the results of their groundwater monitoring under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s 2015 rule regulating the storage and disposal of coal ash. EPA required such monitoring to determine the extent to which coal ash impoundments and landfills were contaminating groundwater. The results confirm the widespread groundwater contamination caused by coal ash around the country. In particular, Duke Energy’s results reveal startlingly high levels of radioactivity at 11 out of 18 plants.
