OSWEGO — Just one week before state officials are expected to decide on billions of dollars in subsidies to keep upstate nuclear plants afloat, more than three dozen local leaders in government, business and labor rallied in support of the proposal at a press conference in Oswego on Monday.

Held at the Lake Ontario Conference Center, the event was hosted by Upstate Energy Jobs Coalition (UEJ), a group backing upstate nuclear power since Entergy announced last year the early closure of the unprofitable James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant.
