King Says He Would Take Action To Close Indian Point As AG

Democratic candidate for attorney general Charlie King today said his first action after taking office would be to take steps to close the Indian Point nuclear power plant.

King, who lives in Rockland County and just a few miles from the plant, says he would file suit against the Nuclear Regulatory Agency and the Federal Emergency Management Agency claiming evacuation plans for the area surrounding the plant are inadequate.

King made his call to close the plant in a press release posted on his Web site today.

"Indian Point is a viable terrorist target without a workable evacuation plan," said King. "The current plan was approved by the same man who said that New Orleans would be safe from Hurricane Katrina, former FEMA director Michael Brown."
