US state efforts to repeal nuclear construction moratoriums are picking up steam as lawmakers eye small modular reactors (SMRs) and advanced nuclear technologies. This is driven by multiple factors, including ever-stricter state decarbonization goals and the economic opportunities provided by new federal incentives, particularly the billions of dollars in cost-share awards for advanced reactor demonstration projects. For now, however, the majority of state interest is in enabling a nuclear option, not necessarily in committing to reactor newbuilds.
