That's the worst run nuclear facility in the country. It should probably get shut down. It's nearly 40 years old and has never operated safely.

The downside to that is loss of jobs, and if I remember correctly some of the nearby schools get free power.

But it has to operate safely if it stays open. Bunch of clowns running that show.

There is too much government regulation.

Industry should be trusted to regulate and inspect themselves.
