A resolution concerning the Indian Point nuclear power plant put forth by a Hudson Valley resident will return to Entergy’s annual shareholder meeting next year.
March Gallagher of Ulster County needed at least 3 percent of the total votes on the measure to enable her resolution to return to Indian Point parent Entergy’s agenda next year. Gallagher says she had purchased Entergy shares to be able to introduce her resolution to decommission Westchester County-based Indian Point.
Two resolutions concerning the Indian Point nuclear power plant are on the agenda of Entergy’s annual shareholder meeting Friday. One is from the New York State comptroller, the other from an Ulster County resident.
After years of contentious debate and legal battles, the state of Vermont and Entergy, the company that owns the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant announced on Monday afternoon that a settlement has been reached that will end all ongoing litigation and delineate a compressed decommissioning schedule.
New York U.S. Senator Charles Schumer Monday stood alongside the Hudson River waterfront in Peekskill, calling for the Department of Homeland Security to review riverfront security at the Indian Point nuclear power plant.
New York’s senior senator urged the U.S. Coast Guard, which is under the jurisdiction of the Homeland Security Department, to quarterback the effort to provide a maritime security plan for Westchester County-based Indian Point.
He says federal, state, and local resources in the form of boat patrols are available.
Actor Alec Baldwin hosted a panel Friday evening in Rockland County on the Indian Point nuclear power plant. A state assemblywoman and the president of an environmental group were among those on the panel, calling for the shutdown of Indian Point.
The panel discussion, “Driving Without a License: Indian Point at the Crossroads,” was presented by the nonprofit Radiation and Public Health Project, with which Alec Baldwin has been connected for some time. However, Baldwin says this marks his first activist role specifically pertaining to Westchester-based Indian Point.
