Good morning and welcome back!

I recommend keeping an eye on the Axios stream for coverage of Mike Allen's interviews this morning with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Democratic Sen. Mark Warner.

Ok, let's dive in . . .

What we're watching today: A critical decision on utility giant Southern Company's troubled nuclear power project in Georgia by the Georgia Public Service Commission. The Augusta Chronicle gives a preview here.

Thanks for reading and we'll see you back here tomorrow.
