Discussions on Constellation Energy Group's plan to sell nearly 50% of its nuclear business to France's EDF resumed Thursday in Baltimore, with advocates and critics each arguing that they have the state's best interests in mind. Representatives of Constellation employees said the $4.5 billion deal would ensure the firm's financial security and growth. Environmental groups, however, voiced doubts on EDF's business activities and expressed opposition to plans for a third nuclear reactor at Constellation's Calvert Cliffs plant if the agreement is approved.
