ATLANTA (AP) - Few proposals this legislative session have sparked as much acrimony as a Senate measure that paves the way for Georgia Power to begin charging ratepayers early for a $14 billion nuclear expansion.
The plan faces its first hearing in the House today after it was passed by Senate lawmakers last week.
And although it glided through the Senate by a 38-16 vote, critics of the measure hope opponents in the House can cripple - or at least delay - the heavily lobbied bill's progress through the Capitol.
