NRC Opens Public Comment Period on New Decomm Rules

It will take a few years to create new decommissioning rules, and they will not affect Vermont Yankee decommissioning, says the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. But Safe & Green Campaign believes other states and citizens groups should learn for the lessons we are currently being taught about decommissioning. This was just posted, so it will take a bit to process. We will post our own comments for you to read at a later date. For now, below is the link from the Federal Register as of November 19, 2015.

We have 45 days to comment (before January 4, 2016).
