Public Comment Period for Indian Point Shutdown Extended

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has extended the public comment period on the decommissioning of Indian Point another 30 days to March 25th. Rockland Congresswoman Nita Lowey, and U-S senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand got the NRC to extend the public comment period so more information could be gathered on the shutdown. Meanwhile, the Times-Herald Record reports New York Attorney General Letitia James says selling the plant could be “very risky” and wants federal safety regulators to think twice before moving ahead. She’s concerned the new company handling the decommission, Holtec International, doesn’t have enough money to pay for the 12-15 year process.
