MAYOR BOB FILNER'S COMMENTS RE: SAN ONOFRE ON KPBS TODAY!
"On KPBS Evening Edition, he (San Diego Mayor Bob Filner) responded to news that Senator Barbara Boxer has called on federal regulators to investigate San Onofre. Boxer said there is new information that Southern California Edison was aware of problems with San Onofre's generators before the company installed them.
"Filner said the Nuclear Regulator Commission must hold a public hearing requiring proof from Edison the plant is safe to restart.
"'Look, we don't want to be a Three Mile Island,' he said. 'We don't want to be a Chernobyl. We don't want to have a situation as they did in Japan. The safety of nuclear plants is very shaky.'
"The NRC says it won't allow the plant to restart until it's saftisfied the plant can operate without undue risk to public health and safety."
