Senate votes to lift nuclear ban
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota senators Thursday voted to end a long-time moratorium on nuclear-power plant construction.
The long-divisive issue passed 42-24 as an amendment to an overall energy bill that later received tentative Senate approval.
"Nuclear power is clean," Sen. Steve Dille, R-Dassel, said. "Nuclear power is good and we need to continue it."
