WASHINGTON -- Ohio's Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown and Republican Sen. Rob Portman met Wednesday with Energy Secretary Steven Chu in another effort to move a loan guarantee for the American Centrifuge Plant in Piketon along.

Brown said that while there were no new developments to report, he did walk away from the meeting with a good feeling.

"Today's meeting reaffirmed that the Department of Energy wants them to succeed as well," Brown said. "Secretary Chu reiterated that if USEC can deliver on its technology and finances, it will get the loan guarantee."
