This Tuesday, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission notified Entergy that Comissioner William D. Magwood, IV, one of the five members of the presidentially appointed Commission that oversees the NRC, will tour on May 29.
The Commissioner's Legal Counsel wrote in the notice to Entergy:
The purpose of the Commissioner’s visit is to obtain a general familiarity with the facility. The Commissioner will not engage in any substantive discussion during the site visit about any of the issues that have been raised in the ongoing adjudicatory proceeding for the renewal of the operating license for Indian Point.
On the same date, Commissioner Magwood will also meet with representatives of Riverkeeper. This meeting will focus on issues of general concern to Riverkeeper and will not include any substantive discussion of contested issues.
The Commission to which Magwood belongs will have the ultimate NRC say on Entergy's license renewal application.
