On December 4, 2018, the ASLB heard oral arguments on a hearing request regarding the subsequent license renewal application for Turkey Point Units 3 and 4 near Miami, Florida. The Board is composed of members of the ASLB Panel, which is an independent body within the NRC that conducts adjudicatory hearings and renders decisions on legal challenges to licensing actions.
The Board heard arguments on contentions filed by the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE), as well as a group filing from Friends of the Earth, Natural Resources Defense Council and Miami Waterkeeper (Joint Petitioners). The contentions challenge a request from Florida Power & Light (FP&L) to renew the Turkey Point licenses for an additional 20 years. Members of the public and media were allowed to observe the oral argument, but participation was limited to the representatives of SACE, the Joint Petitioners, FP&L and NRC staff.
Documents related to the hearing request are available on the NRC’s Electronic Hearing Docket by clicking on the folder entitled “Turkey Point 50-250 & 50-251-SLR” on the left side of the page. For additional information, please contact Scott Burnell at (301) 415-8200.
