Let VT Commissioner Chris Recchia know you appreciate his work to make our citizens’ voices heard in Washington.

Be sure to include Subject: Docket ID NRC-2014-0260 The NRC has its doubts about Entergy’s request for an exemption. 10.24.15: Rutland Herald article: “NRC claims Entergy submits inaccurate information” Entergy does not want to spend another dime on the emergency planning zone (EPZ) – protecting you, me and the elementary school across the street while it moves highly radioactive fuel out of the seven-story pool, or while the dangerous and dirty work of decommissioning the 40 year old reactor takes place. The NRC’s rule is that EPZs stay in effect, but reactor owners ask for an exemption to that rule soon after power is no longer being produced – but while there is still spent fuel in the fuel poo, while it is being moved into dry cask storage, and while the facility is being taken apart. The NRC has given EPZ exemptions every time the owners have asked. What can you do? Four Massachusetts towns have taken action. Town officials in Gill, Bernardston, Greenfield and Warwick are opposing the exemption request. Organize some friends, draft some language, and ask your town officials to sign a similar letter or pass a resolution. The letter submitted by Gill and contact info for Greenfield are in our “Towns take action of the EPZ post here. At the 12.18.14 meeting of NDCAP Chris Recchia, chair of NDCAP and Commissioner of the VT Dept. of Public Service, said that the state would be “actively opposing” Entergy’s request to the NRC for an exemption.

NATIONAL NUCLEAR ACTION NIRS published a paper in September 2014, “Killing the Competition,” about Exelon & Entergy efforts to squeeze blood more money out of ratepayers & Public Utility Commissions, and block to renewables. Good reading, good graphics, and good background. Safe & Green Campaign members were among the hundreds who testified before the NRC opposing its “Waste Confidence” policy. A federal court said without Yucca Mountain, NRC has to prove waste can be stored safely. So the NRC has decided that on-site storage – even in fuel pools! – is safe. On 9.29.14 safe energy advocates filed a petition protesting NRC’s arrogant defiance of the court. Here’s how you can support them.
