Pressure on as Southern Co. builds nuclear plant

In this Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012 photo, an earth mover works on a new nuclear reactor at the Plant Vogtle nuclear power plant in Augusta, Ga. One of the plant's existing reactors is shown in the background. The $14 billion project is trending hundreds of millions of dollars over budget and trailing more than a year behind schedule, according to a report from a state-hired construction watchdog. Buzz Miller, executive vice president of nuclear development at Southern Co., who oversees the project, says quality counts more than cost. (AP Photo/John Bazemore)
