Upton, NRC Chief Tour Cook, Palisades

Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Allison Macfarlane and Congressman Fred Upton both say they are satisfied by what they observed Friday touring the Cook Nuclear Plant in Bridgman and Palisades in Covert. The two were asked if Palisades was still considered one of the worst nuclear plants in the country, as it was ranked a few years ago, with the answer being "no."


Macfarlane said both plants are working now on making upgrades required by the NRC after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan. That includes installing new equipment that connects with regional response centers in Memphis and Phoenix


Macfarlane also met on Thursday with anti-nuclear activists who have been intent for years on shutting down Palisades.
