NRC Delays Callaway Nuclear License Extension 

On December 10, 2014, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission delayed the license extension of Ameren Missouri’s Callaway 1 nuclear reactor. The temporary delay is a result of MCE’s request for a hearing with the NRC. MCE applauds the NRC’s decision not rush the license extension given the pending legality of its newly published Continued Storage rules for high-level nuclear wastes, which will be determined by the US Court of Appeals in the near future while the current operating license for Callaway 1 does not expire until 2024.
