Beyond Nuclear appeals scandalous NRC rule that has long undermined NEPA to facilitate new reactor construction
Beyond Nuclear has filed multiple appeals at the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia -- the second highest court in the land -- in opposition to Detroit Edison's proposed new Fermi 3 atomic reactor, and the construction/operation license recently rubber-stamped by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).
Terry Lodge, an attorney based in Toledo, serves as legal counsel for Beyond Nuclear.
One of the appeals represents the first legal challenge ever to a scandalous NRC rule change eight years ago that effectively undermined the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA): the Orwellian redefinition of a single word, "construction."
