Just another obvious effort by the NRC to cover up serious potential safety issues that affect the people of Northwest Ohio, especially those who live close to Davis-Besse. First Energy has the NRC in their back pocket, and the NRC has shown once again that it is not willing to give the people the right to be heard in an open public meeting at a convenient time to allow the airing of public safety concerns. Goes back several years to when the plant had to be shut down to correct serious safety problems at the plant. The plant shutdown was only done as a last resort. Every safety issue since has been tightly controlled by the NRC and the company. All to ensure that the company gets the renewal of the license to operate the plant past the 2017 license expiration date. How can the public trust that their safety concerns are treated seriously when the regulatory body responsible for protecting them consistently protects the company that has allowed safety problems to go on without proper correction, outside the public view?
