Gov. Cuomo orders safety review of Indian Point

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) has ordered a safety review of the Indian Point nuclear plant.

The plant is near the Ramapo Fault in New York, where substantial earthquakes are infrequent.

Cuomo has long sought to close the aging plant that's still critical to New York City's power supply.

The discussion of the plant came up with top legislative leaders as they watched the nuclear crisis unfold after the earthquake in Japan.
