Indian Point Relicensing

Earlier this month the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) voted unanimously to wait before approving new licenses for Indian Point or other nuclear plants until it can determine how to deal with safety and environmental threats posed by indefinite on-site storage of highly radioactive spent fuel. Attorney Richard Webster and Clearwater Environmental Director and NRC Petitioner Manna Jo Greene discuss the environmental impacts of on-site spent fuel storage at Indian Point, the vote, and how it impacts the relicensing decision for the Indian Point Nuclear Reactor.
