[SDCPJ] Shut San Onofre! Encinitas City Council unanimously approves letter to NRC

The Encinitas, California, City Council unanimously approved a letter tonight to the NRC calling on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to conduct a public, transparent license amendment hearing on San Onofre. A license amendment is a formal, open and legally adjudicated procedure that would allow for independent expert review of the significant modifications to the replacement steam generators. Under NRC rules, a license amendment is required for major design changes to replacement equipment like those Edison made to these replacement components.   The replacement generators were not "like for like" as Edison presented them to regulators, but instead were substantially altered.

This request was added after the public urged the City Council to modify its proposed letter to make it stronger.  Over 25 citizens and activists attended the meeting to express their concerns about San Onofre.  Although our time was cut, all of our speakers were outstanding.  Special thanks to Del Mar Councilman, Don Moser, who came and shared what the Del Mar City Council passed on Monday night.  

I'll post a copy of the Encinitas CC letter as soon as a revised copy is ready.

Thank you to all who showed up tonight and who have e-mailed and called the City Council.  This is my home town and I'm proud that our city representatives have taken this important step in joining with other elected officials who are taking action on behalf of the health and safety of their constituents!
