Ohio's two U.S. senators are introducing a bill to put $150 million in federal money into the uranium enrichment project in southern Ohio. A spending bill passed Saturday did not include the money for the Piketon plant.

Both Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman have advocated the project. They met with Energy Secretary Steven Chu Saturday.
