The Nuclear Regulatory Commission and FirstEnergy just can't seem to learn the most important lesson, safety-first.  Despite safety problems and an ongoing criminal investigation, the NRC on Monday signed-off on FirstEnergy restarting the Davis-Besse nuclear power plant.

Ohio PIRG will continue to be a watchdog of FirstEnergy and the events at Davis-Besse.   Demonstrating to our state and local officials that we expect them to stand-up to powerful special interests like FirstEnergy is an important step. Thank you to the over 400 activists who sent letters last week asking state officials to oppose restarting Davis-Besse.

Please send an e-mail to the NRC and express your disappointment in their decision.  Then, ask your friends and family to help by forwarding this e-mail to them.
