The 9th District delegation made the following remarks:
“In July, we wrote to the Governor requesting that the Oyster Creek Safety Advisory Panel be reconstituted. This request was made following a meeting with the Concerned Citizens of Lacey Coalition that our delegation has been working closely with on the Oyster Creek decommissioning issue.
“The individuals comprising the coalition remain dedicated to protecting the safety of residents, as we are, and have provided invaluable insight and expertise on the decommissioning process.
“Our delegation called for reconstituting the Safety Advisory Panel in view of the lack of information at the time from the NRC, despite repeated requests from residents and elected officials. Further, we felt it would be prudent to put the State in a position to play a more active role in determining, to the greatest extent possible, how decommissioning of the Oyster Creek facility will be conducted.
“Moving forward, our delegation will continue working with officials at all levels of government, including the Lacey Township governing body and Congressman Andy Kim, to ensure the interests of the people are effective served in this complex and serious process.”
