Nuclear Matters Statement on Washington S. 5116

Nuclear Matters applauds Washington State Governor Jay Inslee for signing S. 5116, which positions the state as a national leader in clean energy. The bill commits Washington to 100% carbon-free electricity by 2045 and paves the way for further development of nuclear energy in the state. Nuclear energy already provides 9.8% of Washington’s emission-free electricity and will be a crucial part of reaching the state’s new goal. We look forward to Washington’s clean energy future and commend state leadership for this exciting resolution.
