Issues

Nuclear plant

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.[1]

The bill stalled after being referred to the Veterans' Affairs, Emerging Issues, Pensions and Urban Affairs Committee.[2]

Scorecards

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Missouri scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
