Daily Caller News Foundation | Andrew Follett
TEMELIN, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUGUST 11: Cars drive by the four cooling towers of the Temelin nuclear power plant on August 11, 2011 near Temelin, Czech Republic. CEZ, the Czech, state-owned energy company that operates Temelin, plans to expand the number of reactors at the plant from the current two to four. Westinghouse, Areva and Atomstroyexport are all vying for the project worth $27.8 billion, and a winner is to be announced before the end of the year. CEZ CEO Martin Roman also confirmed the company's hope to raise its electricity exports to Germany as Germany shutters its own 17 nuclear power reactors in coming years, a possibility that irritates German anti-nuclear activists.

The legislation will help private companies and researchers work with the government to develop new nuclear reactors.
