2019 - 02 - 22 San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace calls for testing of Diablo Canyon Unit One

Mothers for Peace strongly urges Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) to drop its request that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) grant Diablo Canyon an exemption from inspection of a highly radioactive component of the plant.
