New Mexican (Newspaper) - November 6, 1979, Santa Fe, New Mexico A2 THE NEWMEXICAN Santa Fe Nov 4 1979 Abandoning Nplants possible official WASHINGTON AP The chair man of the Nuclear Regulatory Com mission says nuclear plants in areas too populous to be evacuated quickly during a crisis might have to be abandoned Its a Joseph M Hen drie told a House energy subcommittee Monday He said a number of existing plants are located in densely settled areas and that quick evacuation would be difficult if not impractical Two plants in this category are the Indian Point plant north of New York City and the Zion plant near Chicago Hendrie indicated However he stressed that he wasnt recommending either plant be shut down now He said that was a decision that were not up against Another commissioner John F Ahearne suggested that steps short of closing a nuclear plant might first be considered in such instances such as sharply cutting a plants generating output In fact he said he would be surpris ed if he didnt see such steps taken as the government moves in the near future to make the nations 70 operating nuclear plants safer Meanwhile the NRC on Monday an nounced that a freeze on licensing new nuclear plants imposed shortly after the March 28 accident at Three Mile Island is being extended at least until spring Hendrie said the added time is need ed so the recommendations of the presidential commission on Three Mile Island can be fully examined by policy makers Four plants scheduled to go into operation by the end of the year will be directly affected By next spring the number will increase to seven In all 92 plants are now in some stage of construction Industry spokesmen criticized the delaying action NRC director to quit post WASHINGTON AP The ex ecutive director of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission says he is quitting but delaying his resignation to give the NRC time to sort out its problems Lee V Gossick said Monday he is resigning effective Feb i 1980 after serving as NRC staff director since the agency was founded in January 1975 The NRC has been attacked for its atomic power plant safety methods since the accident at Three Mile Island A presidential commission on the accident recommended last week that the independent NRC be replaced by an agency with a single ad ministrator answerable to the president Critics of the NRC staff maintain the agency was not prepared to deal with the power plant accident on March 28 near Harrisburg Pa And NRC commissioners have said there were weaknesses in the agencys bureaucratic structure In his letter to the commission Gossick said I recognize that there are many pressing demands that the commission must meet in the coming months and that some time will be re quired for the commission to clearly define the relationships between the commission the executive director for operations and the major pro gram office directors a step that I believe to be absolutely necessary before selecting my NRC Chairman Joseph Hendrie was quoted as expressing regret at the resignation and praising Gossicks highly effective service in some difficult times for the agency ranging from the initial period of reorganiza tion of the NRC through the Three Mile Island accident and its Gossick is a 59yearold aeronautical engineer who served in the Air Force for 31 years before retir ing with the rank of major general in
