Emotions may peak at hearing on ending state ban on building nuke power plants
Emotions are sure to run high Thursday when a state committee holds a hearing on a bill to end the state's 24-year-old construction ban on nuclear power plants.
Rep. Frank Boyle, D-Superior, says he would have been crazy to end the ban 10 years ago. But with global warming, things are different now.
Boyle says the time has come to build nuclear plants as an alternative to the greenhouse gases being spewed out by coal and oil-fired plants.
