Casey Requests Additional Information on Nuclear Disaster Preparedness

June 28, 2011

Many nuclear plants in the United States were intentionally built away from population and economic centers. As our country has grown, more of our citizens live in proximity to those plants. These new demographic realities require a reexamination of our security protocols.

As a Senator from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, my constituents are deeply concerned about the emergency plans relevant to the Three Mile Island, Susquehanna, Beaver Valley, Peach Bottom and Limerick plants. This growing challenge also has clear national implications that merit GAO examination. Thank you for your attention to this important matter and I look forward to your reply.

Sincerely,

Robert P. Casey, Jr.
Chairman
Joint Economic Committee
