Senators demand independent review of New Hampshire nuclear power plant

Both Massachusetts senators are demanding an independent review of the Seabrook Nuclear Power plant months after news outlets reported on cracking concrete at the facility. The plant and the federal oversight agency insist there is a robust monitoring program already in place and the buildings are safe. "The concrete degradation is happening faster than expected and it is absolutely imperative that as a result, we have a review," Senator Ed Markey said. "We have to make sure it's safe, we have to make sure that concrete is going to hold... that requires critical questions to be asked and answered."
