New Congressman Visits Beaver Valley
May 3, 2018
Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA, shown center), the newest member of the U.S. House of Representatives, spent several hours at Beaver Valley recently. Rep. Lamb came to get a firsthand look at a nuclear power station and to gather some information on how it all works. According to Beaver Valley Site Vice President Rich Bologna, “These visits are an opportunity for us to educate legislators and others who can, and will, have an influence on our future as a site and as an industry.”
Rep. Lamb took advantage of perfect blue-sky weather. He had the chance to stand in the equipment hatch, see dry cask storage, visit the Control Room and get an up close look at the three new Steam Generators.
His visit follows a stop at Beaver Valley by one of his House colleagues, Rep. Keith Rothfus (R-PA). The two will square off in the fall for the newly created 17th Congressional district seat, which includes all of Beaver County, and areas like North Fayette, Cranberry Township, Moon, Sewickley, Fox Chapel, Mt. Lebanon and Oakdale. Rep. Lamb was elected to the seat of former Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA), who represented the 18th District prior to recent redistricting in Pennsylvania.
