NRC denies license for 3rd reactor in Maryland
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Nuclear Regulatory Commission can't issue a license to a French company to build a new nuclear power plant in Maryland as long as the company is completely foreign owned, a panel of judges ruled Thursday.
The 29-page ruling on the application to build a third reactor at Calvert Cliffs was made by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Atomic Safety and Licensing Board. The ruling noted that the 1954 Atomic Energy Act prohibits the NRC from issuing a reactor license to any company owned by a foreign corporation or government.
