Agency plans second meeting on Areva project

Comment:  So the NRC really did not want to have a second meeting with the public but later agreed to have the meeting.  The NRC is just nuke pushers!  No to uranium mining, milling and anything nuke related!

BOISE -- The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has agreed to hold a public meeting in Boise on a proposal by French nuclear giant Areva Inc. to build a uranium enrichment plan in eastern Idaho.

The federal agency initially rejected a request for a second meeting in Idaho to take public comment on the project.

The Snake River Alliance opposes Areva's $4 billion Eagle Rock plant, saying the nuclear facility could have a profound impact on the state and region.

The NRC is hosting its the Boise public meeting Aug. 9, then a second in Idaho Falls Aug. 12.
