Watts Bar 2 Pre-license Inspection - NRC Meeting
April 9, 2014

We Question Safety of "New" Watts Bar 2 Reactor License Process 
and TVA Perspective on Stakeholders

BEST-MATRR and SACE raise questions about non-nuclear parts usage 
and NRC's inspection role. 

NRC's answer: "We are a sampling organization...
we have not inspected all the parts...
TVA's responsibility".  http://youtu.be/Xbb9KMBo990

TVA's slide on Watts Bar Stakeholders 
lists the NRC Commissioners as #1
followed by CASE - an NEI (Nuclear Energy Institute) group
followed by the NEI, the nuclear industry lobbyist.
TVA Customers are listed as #4.

Citizens ask question about TVA's listing.
We think that NRC, as the regulator, is not a Stakeholder
and that NEI, as the nuclear industry lobbyist,
should not be considered more of a Stakeholder than TVA customers,
who pay for the plants and live with the waste.
. This provides a rare insight 
into TVA's management philosophy
- nuclear industry first, customers last. 
TVA "spins" answer to question about their slide.
