Give us a break already...Reps. Nita Lowey, D-Harrison; Eliot Engel, D-Bronx; John Hall, D-Dover Plains; Maurice Hinchey, D-Hurley; and Christopher Shays, R-Bridgeport, Conn. all trotted out to the press today to let us know they have sent a blistering letter off to the NRC demanding "A SERIES OF ROBUST PUBLIC HEARINGS" on Indian Point's brittling failing reactors. WOW, nothing like demanding what the NRCs 10 CFR Rules and Regulations already guarantee us...WAY TO STICK YOUR NECKS OUT GUYS!
Do hope this is not what Congressman John Hall meant when he stated last Saturday that he has some ideas and plans in the works to halt relicensing. In the meantime, the Indian Point license renewal package is now on the NRC web page...all 1600 plus pages of it. Below is the information you need to access it.
