Former WC pol suing NRC over Indian Point safety

Former state Assemblyman Richard Brodsky is filing a lawsuit against the Nuclear Regulatory Commission over allegations that it granted an illegal exemption to the Indian Point power plant several years ago regarding fire insulation at the plant.

Brodsky spoke in White Plains yesterday to members of the Westchester County Board's Energy and Environment Committee. Brodsky says that instead of lasting the required hour, the NRC only required that fire insulation tests conducted several years ago last only 24 minutes.

"I suggest that the people of this area need the protection that only the courts can provide, with respect to this fire-safety issue," Brodsky added.

Brodsky says the NRC has not provided him with any answers to his question. He has filed a federal appeal over the matter.
