The resolution unanimously passed the Energy and Environment Committee, and we need swift passage by the full council on Tuesday.Los Angeles City Council John Ferraro Council Chamber, Rm 340 City Hall 200 North Spring Street Los Angeles, CA 90012 San Onofre is Item #3 on the agenda.

Proposed San Onofre Resolution:
…the City of Los Angeles hereby includes in its 2013-2014 Federal Legislative Program SUPPORT for action by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to
- make no decision about restarting either San Onofre unit until it has fully reviewed public safety through a prudent, transparent, and precautionary process, has allowed independent experts and the public ample opportunity to comment, and has confirmed that Southern California Edison has completed any resulting mandated repairs, replacements, or other actions necessary to guarantee both short- and long-term safe operation of San Onofre.
- Furthermore, the City encourages the NRC to take the time needed to independently determine whether or not the information, analysis and actions provided by Southern California Edison constitute a solid technical basis for the adequate protection of the public and resumption of operations.
Other things you can do:
- Email and call the following four Council members and tell them to support the LA City Council Resolution on San Onofre safety:
I support this resolution strongly, as it calls for meaningful and transparent opportunities for the public and independent experts to weigh in and for repairs that guarantee short and long term safety to be completed before a decision on restart is made. I want you to support this resolution for safety, too.
- Share handout San Onofre Nuclear Reactor may restart WITHOUT repair or replacement defective parts.
- Please share this information with others.
