DeLissio 84th Town Hall: The Future of Nuclear Energy

PHILADELPHIA, May 3 -- State Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila., will host her 84th Town Hall Meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 22 in the Wolcoff Auditorium at Roxborough Memorial Hospital located at 5800 Ridge Ave., Philadelphia.

The discussion this month will center on the future of nuclear energy, the current state of the nuclear industry and how it compares to wind, solar and fossil fuels as an electricity producer. The implications of the discussion will impact the consumer’s pocketbook; both residential and commercial consumers will be impacted. It should also be emphasized that this discussion is time-sensitive as the nuclear industry has indicated that it needs legislation passed in June 2019.

“This will be a good opportunity to learn about the implications of reopening the Alternative Energy Portfolio Standards Act of 2004 and better understand the debate on the state policy effort to address the needs of the nuclear energy industry,” DeLissio said. “As always, I’m looking forward to the dialogue with my constituents. We will have representatives of the nuclear industry and environmental champions present to give their views on pending legislation. As I have mentioned at many town halls, the ‘devil is in the details.’”

Folks from all parts of the 194th Legislative District are welcome, and more information can be obtained by calling DeLissio’s office at 215-482-8726 or visiting www.pahouse.com/DeLissio.
