SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Exelon Generation and ComEd announced today the pending filing in Springfield of the Next Generation Energy Plan, a bill with strong bipartisan, labor, and community support that would drive Illinois' clean energy future while saving and creating jobs and strengthening the state's economy.

Go figure, how ironic is it that they call this proposed Bill "The Next Generation Energy" when these reactors are old outdated technology. Many of these reactors have even ran past their engineered life expectancy but continue to operate because the NRC extended their license.

Nuclear power is not safe or clean and these reactors in the U.S. certainly are not state of the art. Experts say that unborn babies, children & women receive more negative health effects from radioactive contamination than men do. Like Japan, women should be standing up against nuclear power and all the lifetime of waste that it creates.

SPRINGFIELD — A bill aimed at helping Exelon's money-losing nuclear plants near Clinton and the Quad-Cities likely won't make it out of the spring legislative session, but the company hasn't yet confirmed it will close the two plants.

"The general consensus is that it’s dead for this session," said Henry Marquard, director of government relations for the Quad-Cities Chamber of Commerce. He said he had spoken with an aide to the bill's main sponsor, state Sen. Donne Trotter, D-Chicago, as well as others at the Capitol.

The News-Gazette of Champaign also reported that Trotter has pulled the plug on the bill proposing what Exelon calls the “Next Generation Power Plan,” saying time had run out with the scheduled end of the spring legislative session on Tuesday.

I'm worried that unless Exelon comes out soon crying about this bill not being passed yet, there might have been some backroom deal already made. Time will soon tell but Illinois is broke as a state and it's taxpayers are hurting financially too. We collectively have nothing to give the nuclear plants so just let them shutdown! Most of the power they generate anyway in Illinois is exported anyway.

Either our government officials are really uneducated on this topic of energy or they (U.S. Rep Rodney Davis, R-Taylorville) are boldly telling lies! Does Mr. Davis really believe the people in and around DeWitt County will be without power to cook their food if the local nuclear plant shut down? Please wake up Mr. Davis!

CLINTON, IL — The 29-year-old Clinton nuclear power plant, which employs some 700 people in central Illinois, will close on June 1, 2017, Exelon Corp. said today.

But U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Taylorville, said today he thinks there's still time to save the plant.

"The good news is we've got time because the closure is not set to take effect until next year," Davis said. "We know that it's going to be devastating to the families in and around DeWitt County, but it's also going to be devastating to the families that rely upon that plant to generate power that families use to turn the lights on and cook meals."

How ironic is it that Illinois Rep Rodney Davis who supports nuclear power 100% and also this nuclear power bailout plan/legislation by Exelon Corp called, Next Generation Energy Plan can be seen on his Facebook page wearing a "Fight Cancer" t-shirt.

Apparently Mr. Davis is clueless about the fact that communities living near nuclear plants are proven to have higher risks of cancer. Mr. Davis is also likely unaware that those steam trails out the nuclear plant cooling stacks really do have the radioactive isotope tritium with it.

News documents sometimes mention how nuclear plants will vent hydrogen from the plant (hydrogen build up caused the explosions in Fukushima) but what they don't say is that tritium is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen. This is created as a result of the nuclear power process and can not be avoided.

:!: SHUTDOWN ALL NUCLEAR PLANTS!

Exelon said Thursday it would move ahead with plans to shutter the Clinton and Quad Cities nuclear plants, blaming the lack of progress on Illinois energy legislation, but said its decision could be reversed.

The company, the parent of Chicago-area utilities provider ComEd, said the Clinton Power Station would close June 1, 2017, and the Quad Cities Generating Station in Cordova would close June 1, 2018. The plants have lost a combined $800 million in the past seven years, despite being "two of the best-performing plants," the company said in a statement.
