Reopening the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant
Senator Miriam Santiago and Rep. Mark Cojuango have filed bills that seek to rehabilitate and operate the 23-year old mothballed Bataan Nuclear power plant in Morong Bataan.
It will be recalled that Marcos started the construction of the plant in 1976 and completed it in 1984. But the Cory administration did not see it fit to operate it although it continued to pay the bill, which totalled $2.3 billion when finally paid up in 2997.
