The Wisconsin Network for Peace and Justice, with seven member groups and allies, officially asked Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen to support a lawsuit that New York, Vermont, and Conneticut States are bringing against the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, for its violations of federal law in regards to nuclear waste storage.
The NRC has allowed toxic nuclear waste to remain at Wisconsin facilities without prior studies on the waste sites. The Attorney General must intervene to protect the residents and businesses of Wisconsin, the groups argue. The NRC must conduct site-by-site studies to ensure that the integrity of the waste storage structures remains intact and necessary repairs are made. An especially important concern is groundwater contamination.
The groups' letter to Van Hollen is below.
