WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Representative Brad Wenstrup (OH-02) released the following statement after the Department of Energy finalized a $115 million contract to a Centrus Energy subsidiary to demonstrate the production of high-assay low-enriched uranium (HALEU):
“As a member of the military, I know that the safety and stability of our nation stem from self-reliance and the internal capabilities of our nation, including a fully domestic enrichment capability. I fought for funding for this contract because I know that no workforce is better suited for the challenge of safely supplying our nation’s enriched uranium needs. This demonstration project, and the important jobs it will bring back to Pike County, is great news,” said Congressman Brad Wenstrup.
