AIKEN, S.C. (WRDW) -- The Senate Appropriations Energy & Water bill that contains more than $400 million for the MOX Fuel Fabrication Facility at Savannah River Site passed through a subcommittee on Tuesday, according to a release from U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham.
The legislation is expected to pass the full committee later this week, the release said. The bill is $204 million above President Obama’s budget request and will not place the facility in ‘cold standby.'
The legislation is expected to be considered by the full Senate later this year.
