On December 9, the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) hosted a webinar to highlight issues communities face when a nuclear plant closes. The webinar introduced participants to the closure and decommissioning regulatory process which currently lacks local influence in closure and decommissioning decision-making.
The webinar also provided guidance on actions communities might take in response to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s (NRC) release of their proposed rulemaking and discussed a framework for host communities to effectively engage in NRC’s decommissioning rulemaking process to improve outcomes for communities after closure.
