Ms. Shimsky discussed the Resolution from Greenburgh urging the closing of the Indian Point Nuclear Plant. She noted that this had become more urgent since the nuclear plant disaster in Japan.

Ms. Shimsky noted that she wanted to use this as an opportunity to raise the consciousness of my fellow legislators and other people of Westchester and discuss the risks of this county in regard to Indian Point.

Mr. Harckham suggested that we should get an update on the evacuation plan for this area from the Commissioners of DES and Public Safety.
