Congressional Oversight Of San Onofre

Resolution Number SAC09.65

Congressional Oversight Of San Onofre

WHEREAS, the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station has been found by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission as well as its own internal investigations to have a history of safety, maintenance and training concerns that bring into question the safe operation of the plant and a degraded safety culture, i.e. delayed preventive maintenance, endangered safety employees by careless plant operations, unreliable equipment, insufficient training for its workforce and a history of poor performance over several evaluation cycles;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party requests our local Democratic Congressional members to call for Congressional oversight to investigate the outstanding safety issues at the plant and to assure that the problems identified by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations be addressed.
