Indiana Senate bill will have state consider SMRs
A new bill in the Indiana state Senate creates guidelines for state regulators to consider small modular reactors should utilities want to build them. Senate Bill 271 was sponsored by Sen. Eric Koch (R., Bedford), chair of the Senate Utilities Committee, and Sen. Blake Doriot (R., Goshen). Supporters of the bill said that SMRs could replace retiring coal plants and would supplement renewables.
The Indy Star reported on January 24 that the utilities committee passed the bill by a vote of eight to two and that it now heads to the full Senate.

Recent experimental results on the initial plasma behavior in the AMBAL-M solenoid are reported. Attempts of forced destabilization and stabilization of the solenoid plasma by varying magnetic field structure in the solenoid to create a local mirror trap and divertor are described. Observations of unstable MHD plasma behavior after cut-off of the essentially stabilizing plasma gun are presented.
