Gov. Henry McMaster Statement on S.C. House's Proposal to Halt Utility Charges for VC Summer Project 

 

3/7/2018 

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Governor Henry McMaster today released the following statement in support of the S.C. House of Representatives' amendment to S.954, which would stop South Carolina utilities from charging ratepayers for the failed nuclear reactor project at VC Summer.

"To continue to allow utilities to charge South Carolinians for the failed project at VC Summer when we have the ability to stop it would be a failure on the part of our state's government. The South Carolina Senate has an opportunity to concur with the House's proposal that would stop these payments, and I'm proud to join Speaker Lucas and members of the House in urging them to do that immediately."
