Senator Boxer: Safety First at San Onofre

U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer
2013-04-09 20:13:37
News from Barbara Boxer, United States Senator from California Dear Friend: Today I called on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to take no action that could lead to any restart of the San Onofre nuclear power plant before the Commission completes its comprehensive investigation and provides a full opportunity for public participation.� To read the letter that I sent to NRC Chairman Allison Macfarlane, with Congressman Ed Markey, please go to: www.epw.senate.gov/public/index.cfm I wrote to the NRC in response to Southern California Edison�s latest proposal to weaken its license requirements, which could prematurely enable a restart of the shutdown plant.� As I noted, anything less than a full investigation and safety review �would fall far short of the kind of consideration the 8 million people who live within 50 miles of the San Onofre facility deserve.� Sincerely, Barbara Boxer United States Senator

Dear Friend:

Today I called on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to take no action that could lead to any restart of the San Onofre nuclear power plant before the Commission completes its comprehensive investigation and provides a full opportunity for public participation.  To read the letter that I sent to NRC Chairman Allison Macfarlane, with Congressman Ed Markey, please click I wrote to the NRC in response to Southern California Edison�s latest proposal to weaken its license requirements, which could prematurely enable a restart of the shutdown plant.  As I noted, anything less than a full investigation and safety review �would fall far short of the kind of consideration the 8 million people who live within 50 miles of the San Onofre facility deserve.�
