Governor Beshear's Statement Regarding Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant


Location: Frankfort, KY

"This is wonderful and welcome news not just for the employees of the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant, but for all of Paducah and our state.

"I have had several conversations with Secretary Chu about the importance of this facility, and many others -- including Paducah's city and business leaders and our state's Congressional delegation -- have worked very hard to forge a consensus that allowed this decision today. We are grateful for all those efforts.

"The extension means our hard-working families will have an additional year of employment, and the community will have additional time to determine next steps."
