Public Hearing on New Nuclear Reactors in Levy County, Florida

Crystal River, Florida
Dr. Lynn Ringenberg, PSR Tampa Bay-Florida President, will be speaking on behalf of PSR at the January 12th public hearing regarding two proposed nuclear reactors in Levy County. Dr. Ringenberg will emphasize the health issues related to radiation exposure. This is such an important issue for the health of our state.
