Local officials ask PG&E to study earthquake faults for reactor license

David Sneed of The Tribune reports on the county supervisors’ decision:

Three of five county supervisors Tuesday called on PG&E to voluntarily suspend its drive to renew operating licenses for Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant until extensive earthquake safety studies can be completed.

The decision came after hours of public testimony by nearly 50 people about the safety of Diablo Canyon in light of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan that caused radiation leaks from several crippled nuclear reactors.
