NRC to Look at Indian Point

AP via Topix:
The new chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has ordered an independent review of how it oversees the Indian Point nuclear power plants.

Chairman Dale Klein, who was installed in July, ordered NRC staff on Wednesday to develop a plan 'because of repeated inquiries about the adequacy of NRC oversight and licensee performance' at the two IP reactors in Buchanan, on the Hudson River 35 miles north of midtown Manhattan.
