Omaha, NE - The first words from an NRC spokesman: Fort Calhoun could have been more prepared.
"We have no time table for restart, we are first and foremost concerned with protecting public safety", says NRC Spokesman Victor Dricks.
After a three month long inspection, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission found little progress at Fort Calhoun.
"Although it's hard to understand some of the language, it's pretty clear to me that they have a long way to go yet", says John Pollack of Omaha.
A 15 person team toured the plant from January to March. Through a very thorough checklist, the team reviewed 25 areas at the plant. Only eight checked out.
