Environmentalists fight planned nuclear plant. TX


Environmental groups throughout Texas are lining up to oppose the South Texas Nuclear Operating Co.'s plans to build two additional reactors at its plant near Bay City, Texas.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has filed notice in the Federal Register giving citizens the ability to challenge the proposed reactors. Groups have 60 days to oppose the proposed expansion of the nuclear power plant. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission must still grant a license to build the new reactors.
