The Plan for Nuclear Energy by the Senate's "Gang of Ten"

American Thinker lays out the Gang of Ten's initiatives for developing nuclear energy in the US:

A new faction within the US Senate, the "Gang of 10", have put forward a set of energy policy proposals that they see as a compromise between the "soft energy path" types like Speaker Pelosi and the "hard energy" hawks like Newt Gingrich.

Check it out.
