Some NRC Employees Have Been Furloughed

Here’s something to think about. Some Nuclear Regulatory Commission employees have been furloughed because of the partial federal government shutdown. What does that mean for the North Anna Nuclear Power Station in Louisa County? We asked Elliot Brenner of the NRC if there’s a reason to worry? Brenner says there are on-site teams at the North Anna units, and they will stay there throughout the furlough. You can hear his remarks by clicking the button at the bottom of this article. The Dominion Virginia Power complex (pictured) that includes the North Anna units is the largest employer in Louisa County. Brenner was a guest on Charlottesville Right Now.
