The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) said there are no issues that preclude renewing operating licenses at the LaSalle 1 and 2 Nuclear Plant in Illinois.

The NRC’s supplemental environmental impact statement contains the staff’s conclusion that any impacts do not impede renewing the licenses. NRC’s review consists of a technical safety review and the environmental review. The final supplemental impact statement is supplement 57 to NUREG-1437.

Plant operator Exelon (NYSE: EXC) submitted the 20-year license renewal application on Dec. 9, 2014 for the two boiling water reactors.
