A retiring western Kentucky lawmaker is making his last attempt to lift the state's 30-year ban on constructing nuclear power plants. Senate Appropriations and Revenue Committee Chairman Bob Leeper (I-Paducah) attached his perennial bill, which has historically stalled in the House, to a measure to benefit, AK Steel, a company that's widely considered vital to Kentucky's steel, coal, and auto industries. Leeper explained it's not his style to piggyback bills to unrelated ones, but said economic conditions justify the procedural tactic in this case. Leeper's district has suffered devastating job losses at Paducah's Gaseous Diffusion Plant, which produces enriched uranium. He spoke on March 25, 2014.
