The U.S. Department of Energy is considering restructuring the FuturGen Project. Congressman John Shimkus opposes any restructuring of the project, saying, "The DOE is wasting valuable time and taxpayer dollars in pursuing a multiple-site program when the original FuturGen project site in Mattoon is ready to go." Shimkus is working with the Illinois Congressional delegation to see that Congress continues to fund the original project.
