Citizen Groups Protest Proposed Nuclear Plant In North Ala.
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Several citizen groups have filed a petition with federal nuclear regulators raising concerns over plans to possibly build a nuclear plant in north Alabama.

The petition was filed June 6 with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. It says building a nuclear plant at the Tennessee Valley Authority's Bellfonte site near Scottsboro would cause numerous environmental and safety problems.

TVA spokesman Gil Francis said Tuesday he had not seen the petition. He said TVA is currently applying for a joint construction and operating license for a nuclear plant at Bellefonte but has not decided whether or not to build the plant.
