E-M:/ NRC let Davis-Besse continue to operate because of $$$ hardship to utility

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

   A memo shows that a top Nuclear Regulatory
Commission official let the Davis-Besse nuclear plant
postpone a vital safety inspection last fall because
the utility complained the early shutdown to do the
work would hurt it financially, three watchdog groups
   The NRC has never put to writing its reasons for
allowing FirstEnergy to continue operations an extra
75 days - against the advice of its own experts. Once
the plant was finally shut down, the famed hole in the
reactor head was discovered.
