In the article, Mr. Wooten quotes someone else who gets it.
“There’s a reason there are 25 nuclear applications on the table today when there were six a year ago,” said U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) during a visit to this newspaper Wednesday. “And it is that you can do things by reducing the regulatory burden” and by offering incentives that attract private capital. “There’s no emissions, no global warming, no side effects to it, it’s equally safe and per kilowatt hour is as cheap or cheaper” than alternatives, so “capital will flow there once we reduce the regulatory burden.”
Do you ‘get it’?
