Supplemental View by Six Commisioners

The Commission has unanimously recommended that: "In order to provide an added contribution to safety, the NRC should be required, to the maximum extent feasible, to locate new power plants in areas remote from concentrations of population. Siting determinations should be based on technical assessments of various classes of accidents that can take place, including those involving releases of low dosages of radiation."

The undersigned six Commissioners voted for and support the following recommendation: "No new limited work authorization permits or construction permits should be issued until such time as the NRC or its successor has adopted siting guidelines consistent with above recommendation."
