Uranium plant eyed for southern New Mexico

— A French corporation is looking at U.S. locations for a uranium enrichment facility, including an area between Carlsbad and Hobbs.

State Rep. John Heaton said Monday the Areva plant would be similar to one being built near Eunice to make fuel for commercial nuclear reactors.

Areva says it hopes to make a decision by early next year.
