The Governor says he'll need a lot of convincing before allowing a new nuclear power plant to be built in Wisconsin.
Members of the Governor's Task Force on Global Warming have mentioned lifting the state's moratorium on new nuclear reactors as a possible recommendation. However, Governor Jim Doyle says it's not likely to happen while he's in office.
If any new reactors are opened, Doyle expects other states will lead the way. He says some already have current applications in and would probably start a project first. Afterwards, he says other state would be able to take a look at what a modern nuclear power plant looks like.
Despite his concerns, the Governor says he'll approach the issue with an open mind. He says the issue isn't something the Task Force should leave off the table as it develops its recommendations.
