Tax Breaks for Constellation

Washington Post:
Aiming to become the first U.S. jurisdiction since 1996 with a newly operating nuclear energy reactor, officials in Calvert County this week offered tax breaks valued at $300 million to induce a Baltimore company to expand its nuclear power operation along the Chesapeake Bay.

County commissioners took action at the request of the company, Constellation Energy Group Inc., and appeared to push Calvert ahead of the two counties in New York that have similar operations run by Constellation.
