Beyond Nuclear files motion to block final NRC licensing decisions at Fermi 3, Davis-Besse and Grand Gulf units pending Nuke Waste Con Game resolution
Following on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit's recent ruling nullifying the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission's "Nuclear Waste Confidence Decision," Beyond Nuclear and its environmental allies have filed legal motions in the Fermi 3 proposed new reactor proceeding, as well as the Davis-Besse proposed 20 year license extension proceeding. Identical motions were filed by Beyond Nuclear in proceedings for Mississippi's Grand Gulf. The motions call upon NRC to stay any final decisions on the Fermi 3 combined Construction and Operating License Application (COLA), as well as the Davis-Besse License Renewal Application (LRA), Grand Gulf unit 1 relicesning and Grand Gulf unit 3 COLA pending resolution of NRC's now court-mandated environmental assessment of safety and security risks with long-term storage of high-level radioactive waste at reactor sites. The environmental coalitions issued press releases regarding Fermi 3 and Davis-Besse. Toledo attorney Terry Lodge represents the environmental coalitions in both proceedings.
