Last week, Gov. Cuomo’s Director of State Operations wrote to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) urging them not approve a new license for the Indian Point nuclear power plant in Westchester County.

The letter argues that Entergy Corp., the company that owns and operates Indian Point, does not have a satisfactory evacuation plan for residents who live near the facility, and that this makes it “irresponsible” to give the plant a new twenty year license to operate.
