"The Washington State Senate Environment, Energy & Technology Committee drafted a new bill, SB 5244, encouraging the production of advanced nuclear reactors, small modular reactors, and components through the Invest in Washington Act.
Sponsored by Washington State Senators Sharon Brown (R), Perry Dozier (R), Jeff Holy (R), Mark Mullet (D), Ron Muzzall (R) and Shelly Short (R), this bill promotes the manufacture and deployment of new nuclear reactors.
These include small modular reactors that have a gross power output below 350 MW of electricity, are designed for factory manufacturing and ease of transport, or both, and advanced nuclear reactors having significant improvements over the present nuclear fission reactors, or a reactor employing nuclear fusion. Also included are components of these reactors."
