The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals revoked part of a district court decision regarding the exemption to fire-safety rules at Indian Point Unit 3 in New York. Plaintiffs said the Nuclear Regulatory Commission did not inform the public that it was considering an exemption, thereby violating a provision in the National Environmental Policy Act. The appeals court sided with the plaintiffs about having a public hearing but still allowed the NRC to clarify the issue.
