|• Transportation, Vice-chair|
|• Joint Committee on Corrections|
|• Joint Committee on Transportation Oversight|
In 2010, Kehoe sponsored legislation that would speed up the process of building a second nuclear power plant in Missouri.
The bill would have allowed a coalition of power companies, involved in an effort to obtain an early site permit from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, to recoup nuclear permit costs through rate hikes. Permit costs were estimated at around $40 million.
“Building a nuclear facility is a process, and it does take quite a while,” said Kehoe. “That’s why I feel it’s really important to talk about it today because we’re talking about supplying base-load power for people in 2020, maybe 2022, and our aging coal fired plants need to be addressed."
Kehoe noted that even if the permit was granted to build the plant, a new plant could take 10 years or more to be constructed and brought online.
The bill stalled after being referred to the Veterans' Affairs, Emerging Issues, Pensions and Urban Affairs Committee.
