E-M:/ NRC sold out public interest in allowing contined Davis-Besse operation

Enviro-Mich message from Terry Lodge <tjlodge50@yahoo.com>

   The 5 commissioners of the Nuclear Regulatory
Commission sucuumbed to utility lobbying and overroad
the agency staff last year, allowing Davis-Besse to
operate for 75 extra days before catastrophic damage
to the reactor head was discovered. The staff had
prepared an unprecedent immediate, urgent shutdown
order to the utility when it was vetoed.

   Any residual belief that the NRC regulates in the
public interest should be discarded.
