U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham plans to take his concerns regarding the VC Summer abandoned nuclear project to President Donald Trump.
Last week the South Carolina Republican told reporters that he would urge the President to not let the project fail.
“I’m going to work with the governor and the President to try to convince him that if you do not try to build these three nuclear power plants, that’s the end of the nuclear renaissance in America and that would be a loss for this country,” Graham said, referencing the two abandoned nuclear projects in South Carolina and one that’s currently under construction in Georgia.
“I don’t want people in South Carolina to pay for a hole in the ground,” Graham said. “We’ve had 9 rate increases to pay for these power plants. There are other companies out there that can partner to build these plants.”
