Proposal for Fermi 3 draws 150 to meeting
Monroe-area officials cite economic boost

Snip: "MONROE - About 150 braved high winds and icy roads yesterday to give the Nuclear Regulatory Commission their thoughts about a nuclear plant that DTE Energy hasn't yet decided whether to build.
The $10 billion Fermi 3 construction project would be one of the largest in Michigan's history.


Snip: "Ron May, a DTE senior vice president and the project's manager, said yesterday, "We're in the game. But we haven't committed yet to build."
DTE spent $30 million and put more than 100,000 man hours into its 17,000-page Fermi 3 license application, which is expected to undergo four years of review by the regulatory agency."


Snip: "The agency is giving the public until Feb. 9 to submit comments about environmental issues. It has set a March 9 deadline for opponents to request an intervention hearing. More information about the licensing process is at nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors.html.
