ANS Nuclear Policy Wire 12/18: Incomplete Pass

The text of the final tax bill is out, and the nuclear power production tax credit has been axed. The credit would have allowed the under-construction Vogtle plants to qualify for a tax break byextending the expiration date past the original 2020 deadline for plants to begin operating. 
Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA) told the Washington Examiner, "I am committed to doing whatever I can to ensure that the Plant Vogtle project stays on track for completion to strengthen America's energy security and to preserve the more than 6,000 Georgia jobs created by this project...we are working on a path forward to get a nuclear tax credit extension passed this year or early next year."
