Legislature Overrides Odell’s Veto
Indian Point Evacuation Plan at Issue
By a vote of 8 to1, the Putnam Legislature has overridden County Executive MaryEllen Odell’s veto of legislation that called on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to expand the emergency evacuation zone around Indian Point from 10 miles to 50 miles. The decision came at a special meeting last Wednesday evening attended by a handful of residents.
