VT Yankee Receives Passing Grade
Vermont's only nuclear plant has received a passing grade from federal regulators on a security review, but details are secret.
The Rutland Herald Reports that the vice president for Yankee's site, Michael Columb, received a letter from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission saying it found no problems during a recent security review, completed October 8th.
Plant spokesman Larry Smith calls the results of the inspection a clean bill of health.
The nuclear industry and federal regulators have been stepping up security since the 9/11 attacks. But the efforts have been shrouded in secrecy.
