In response to today's announcement that the U.S. Department of Energy has agreed to partner with USEC on a $350 million research and development project at the American Centrifuge Project in Piketon, State Senator Bob Peterson (R- Sabina) issued the following statement:
"This agreement represents a major step in revitalizing Piketon and the surrounding community, as the American Centrifuge Project will bring needed jobs to southern Ohio and help put our state at the forefront of the advanced energy industry. The people of Piketon have been waiting a long time to get this project off the ground, and I am pleased to see it moving forward. I applaud everyone at the state, local and federal level, USEC, the Department of Energy and all those who have worked on this deal for their commitment to Piketon and the American Centrifuge Project."
