Florida Citizens Organizing to Repeal Advanced Nuclear Cost Recovery
  • House Bill 4003: Repeal Nuclear Cost Recovery!

    Peter Bradford gives testimony to FL House Energy & Utilities Sub Committee

    An ongoing, bi-partisan effort to repeal nuclear cost recovery in Florida has manifested this year in House Bill 4003, sponsored by Representatives Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda (D) and Mike Fasano (R). Speaker of the House Will Weatherford (R) said earlier this year that he would make sure this issue was finally vetted in the legislature. That’s good news for consumers in Florida.

    The Senate has also expressed interest in the issue, and has responded with an amendment bill that barely grazes the surface in protecting consumers. They also hosted a very pro-nuclear discussion last week, where the industry and the utilities extolled upon the virtues of nuclear, while the public and anyone with contrary opinions were given a mere 20 minutes to state their case. Fortunately, the House hosted a similar meeting today that included testimony from Peter Bradford, who has a long history as both a former state utility regulator and former commissioner with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and gives a clear argument as to the flaws of nuclear cost recovery, within a historical context.
