This spring, the legislature passed a historic and bipartisan measure co-sponsored by State Representative Ryan Spain to help meet energy demand in Illinois by ending the state’s moratorium on new nuclear plant construction.

Rep. Spain called the decision a frustrating and unnecessary setback. The legislature does have the ability to override the Governor’s veto, which could happen during the fall Veto Session.
