The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has agreed to extend the public comment period on the proposed license transfer of Indian Point Energy Center from Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc. (Entergy) to Holtec Decommissioning International (Holtec) from 30 to 60 days, making the final date March 25, 2020.

“Westchester County will feel the impacts of the decommissioning of Indian Point for generations – so it is imperative that the public have ample opportunity for input every step along the way. I, along with numerous other officials, demanded this extended comment period and am satisfied that the NRC has complied. Thank you to our federal delegation – Senate Minority Leader Schumer, Senator Gillibrand and Congresswoman Lowey for their successful efforts in Washington D.C. raising the concerns of local leaders here in Westchester.”
