The reactor could bring 400 jobs to mid-Missouri and would power 45,000 homes. Missouri has the potential to become a hub of small reactor manufacturing and distribution.</p> Thu, 25 Oct 2012 13:17:44 +0000 Katarina Sostaric 23404 at http://kbia.org MU, Missouri S&T partner to research small modular nuclear reactors Task force created to try to secure Westinghouse nuclear project funding http://kbia.org/post/task-force-created-try-secure-westinghouse-nuclear-project-funding <p>Governor Jay Nixon announced today the creation of a Local Government Task Force to assist an effort to develop and manufacture small nuclear reactors.
