Indian Point versus AG Schneiderman

April 17, 2011

NYS AG Eric Schneiderman doesn’t think that the NRC should proceed with the relicensing of the the Indian Point nuclear facility in 2013 until it has changed its review procedures in light of the Fukushima disaster. He also believes the Indian Point plant’s operators should be punished for failure to upgrade its fire detection and suppression system, despite the fact that Indian Point has passed all previous regulatory reviews.

The Empire Page sought the views of John Durso, Jr., executive director of the New York Affordable Reliable Electricity Alliance, an industry spokesman and published the interview today (Sunday April 17) on the Improving New York page of the Empire Page. Comments can be added to the end of the interview.

This week’s poll question will ask New Yorker’s how they feel about Indian Point.
