It’s unlikely the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission will grant a citizen coalition’s request to temporarily shut down the Oyster Creek nuclear plant in Lacey Township on April 9, the day its license expires.

“Right now, they still have this exemption in place that allows them to continue to operate until there is a final decision by the commission,” he said.
