Hearing Set on New Reactors for South Texas Project

The Atomic Safety and Licensing Board's hearing in Houston is now set for Jan. 6, 2014.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Atomic Safety and Licensing Board has rescheduled a Houston hearing that involves an application to build two new reactors at the South Texas Project site near Bay City, Texas, about 90 miles south of Texas' largest city. The hearing involves Nuclear Innovation North America’s application to build two advanced boiling-water reactors, and the board will examine whether the applicant’s planned corporate governing structure and financing comply with NRC's rules prohibiting foreign ownership, control, and domination.

The public hearing will start at 9 CST on Jan. 6 in Room 425 of the Fourteenth Court of Appeals, 301 Fannin St. and will continue Jan. 7 until noon, if necessary. Participation in the hearing will be limited to the parties and their lawyers and witnesses, however.

The board is accepting written comments from interested members of the public, known as limited appearance statements. These statements are not testimony or evidence, but they may aid the board and/or the parties in considering the issues in the hearing. Statements may be mailed to Office of the Secretary Rulemaking and Adjudications Staff, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, D.C. 20555-0001; faxed to 301-415-1101, or sent by email to [email protected]
