After hours of debate, the Georgia House of Representatives passed a controversial bill that would allow Georgia Power to charge customers in advance for financing costs on two proposed nuclear reactors at Plant Vogtle.

The bill now moves back to the state Senate where it originated and passed by a wide margin. That chamber will then send it to Gov. Sonny Perdue's desk for signature. The governor has not said whether he supports or opposes the measure. It merits a mention, however, that Perdue's chief of staff is a former Georgia Power executive.

Full list of how lawmakers voted will be posted when it's available.
