Wyo’s energy industry & economy will benefit from a nuclear power plant, says Cheney

WASHINGTON, D.C. — This morning, Liz Cheney issued a statement regarding Governor Mark Gordon’s announcement that TerraPower will construct and operate a nuclear power plant in Wyoming.

Cheney argued that the construction of a power plant this size is a victory for Wyoming’s energy industry along with the livelihoods that it supports across the state.

“We are the best-equipped state in the nation to produce affordable and reliable energy, and that will be enhanced with the construction and operation of a nuclear power plant,” said Cheney. “On top of strengthening our state’s energy industry, this plant will bolster our economy by creating new construction and energy production jobs”

In addition to job growth, Cheney mentioned how nuclear power is a key element in the “all-of-the-above” energy approach that she believes the state and country should follow.

“That approach also needs to include the continued utilization of fossil fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas, which are national treasures in Wyoming,” Cheney said.

She emphasized how the construction of the nuclear power plant will push Wyoming to remain as a dependable energy resource in the U.S. and will continue to support the state’s growing economy.
