The article discusses a series of legal challenges by antinuclear groups against the U.S. nuclear plant projects and the utilities' efforts to re-license existing reactors. The challenges are targeting 13 proposed new nuclear projects and also challenges the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to review utility requests to re-license reactors and Westinghouse's AP1000 reactor. The filings is said to come at a time when NRC is set to decide on the operating licenses for two new nuclear projects.
