This is a key hearing regarding the permit to build a nuclear waste dump 100 feet from the seawall at San Onofre by the California Coastal Commission. After this hearing, a lawsuit was filed by Citizens Oversight in California Superior Court challenging the appropriateness of this permit. As of this writing, the next hearing is on April 14, 2017 in San Diego. Please contact info@citizensoversight.org for details. We need people at the hearing showing their concern for this obscenity.
